      Amazon recently introduced a new set memory-optimized EC2 instance types (r4.*). These instances improve upon the popular R3 instances with a larger L3 cache and faster memory. On the network side, they support up to 20 Gbps of ENA-powered network bandwidth when used within a Placement Group, along with 12 Gbps of dedicated throughput to EBS.

      Description

      As a jclouds client targeting AWS EC2 as one of the deployment cloud providers, I would like to avail of the newly added R4 instance types that are memory optimized but more cost-effective than the previous generation R3 instance types.
