This section lists the Infoblox vNIOS for AWS appliance models and their specifications. You load the Infoblox vNIOS for AWS AMI (Amazon Machine Image) from the Infoblox Community AMI page and deploy it in your chosen VPC. For more information, see Obtaining the Infoblox vNIOS for AWS AMI.

Depending on your AWS region and the NIOS release your system is running, you may need to select a different EC2 shape for the corresponding vNIOS for AWS model. The following is a summary of the AWS regions and the associated EC2 shapes:

  • For NIOS 8.1.x and earlier: Use "m4.xlarge" for US East (Ohio), Canada (Central), EU (London), Asia Pacific (Seoul), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai) regions. These regions do not have the "m3.xlarge" shape.
  • For NIOS 8.2.x and later: Use "r4.xlarge" for Canada (Central) and EU (London) regions. These regions do not have the "r3.xlarge" shape.
  • Use the "m3.xlarge" and "r3.xlarge" shapes for the rest of all regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West  (N. California), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and South America (Sao Paulo).

    Note

    You must select the All generations filter on the Choose an Instance Type page to make the "m3.xlarge" shape available.

  • Only for NIOS 8.5.2 (TE-V4025 model only): Use "r4.4xlarge" for all regions except Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Middle East (Bahrain), Europe (Milan), and Europe (Stockholm), for which you must use the "d2.4xlarge" shape.
  • If the required EC2 shape is not available, you can select the nearest compatible shape to create an instance. For more information on AWS instance types, see
