Is there any way to get to use "next gen" instance types in the my-cf template

# AWS instance type. See <http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/> for
# a list of legal instance types.
as far as i can tell, the t2 machines are dated, while trying to use next gen throws an error, it doesn't recognize the type

No. I opened a feature request on this recently. If interested, you can vote for it there https://ask.datomic.com/index.php/604/support-for-recent-aws-instance-types

@jdkealy may be asking about the on-prem template, not cloud

yes, the on-prem template

Yeah, @jdkealy the on-prem template is provided as a convenience you can roll your own. Otherwise we'd have to include the new instance types in the next release with the template tooling.


Hey, I never thanked you for this response, so thank you! When we discussed it on the team that was definitely a solution that came up when we asked "how would we have done this in SQL-land". I personally suspect that something may be wrong with my recursive rules, but I'm still working through some of the details. Jaret posted a great set of questions for us, which I'm working on answering
