The G2 instance family is designed for applications that require heavy graphics and video streaming. High-performance NVIDIA GPUs support these instances and allow for 3D imaging, graphic streaming, audio and video. Additionally, a built-in hardware video encoder for each AWS GPU instance is constructed to enable up to eight real-time HD video streams.

This type of instance is suitable for graphic workloads, video encoding or applications that require high-quality interactive streaming.
