Hey guys,

I would like to understand why the EC2 T3.* instances are not available to launch via Turnkey HUB.

I only see T2 instances.

Thanks for you interest in the new T3 AWS instance sizes.

We've been a little slow to support them, but it's in progress. The first part of the puzzle was making AMIs that are compatible with the new instance sizes. We've got them working now. So (most) our instances on AWS Marketplace (at least those that have been rebuilt and updated - ~70% of the library) will support that shortly (hopefully this week?!).

Adding support to the Hub will take a little longer. I've opened a separate issue for that, but it will need us to see what may need to be adjusted to make the Hub launch the new instance sizes. On face value it seems fairly straight forward, but it is possible that it may not be quite as simple as simply adding them to the interface. FWIW to build them we needed to use a newer AWS API version than we were previously using, and the same may be true of the Hub?

Thanks Jeremy,

Gonna keep an eye on those issues.

Best regards.

Thanks for your interest and apologies on the delay on supporting the newer AWS T3 instance sizes.

We certainly do plan to support them, although we're not completely clear on when that will be.

With the upcoming release of Debian 10/Buster (planned for this weekend) we've been putting our resources into trying to fix as many bugs and issues with the current appliances and getting them into good shape. With most of that out of the way, we're moving our focus to producing our v16.0 release (based on the new Debian 10/Buster).

Once we have a v16.0 release then I hope to put some attention back into getting the T3 instances fully supported.
