Upgrades: EC2 Instance Sizes

This feature is only available for instances hosted on AWS.

You can change instance size of Matillion ETL at any time. Available EC2 instance sizes for the current version of Matillion ETL are t2.medium, m4.large and m4.xlarge, detailed in the table below. Please refer to the Amazon Documentation for more details on instance types. 
Instance Size Max. Concurrent User Max. Environments Suitable for
t2.medium 2 6 Teams of 1 or 2 persons
m4.large 5 15 Teams of 2 to 5 persons
m4.xlarge 12 36 Teams of 6 to 12 persons
Note that Enterprise Mode is only available on m4.large and m4.xlarge instances.

Once you have changed instance size the new instance limits will apply. Note that once you have changed instance size new charges will apply when the instance is running. See Choosing an Instance size for more information.

For users with m3 instances, we recommend the following conversions:
Old New
m3.medium t2.medium
m3.large m4.large
m3.xlarge m4.xlarge

Details on how to change the instance sizes are given below, seperately for hourly and annual subscribers.

For Hourly Customers

  • Log into the EC2 Section of your AWS console.
  • Select Instances and search for your Matillion ETL Instance.
  • Stop the instance using Right Click → Instance State → Stop
  • Change the type using Right Click → Instance Settings → Change Instance Type

  • Choose either t2.medium, m4.large or m4.xlarge. (If you started your Matillion instance on versions prior to 1.24.6, choose from m3.medium, m3.large, m3.xlarge)
  • Restart the instance using Right Click → Instance State → Start

For more information on resizing an EC2 instance, please refer to the Amazon Documentation.

For Annual Customers

Annual customers must perform the same steps as hourly customers but with an additional step.

Since annual customers have subscribed to Matillion ETL using a particular instance size for the entire year, this subscription must be changed alongside the instance itself. Again, instance sizes t2.medium, m4.larger and m4.xlarge are available and the chosen size must match the instance size in your marketplace software subscriptions library.

If you have an existing annual subscription and need to change it please contact support@matillion.com.
