Consider offering 128MB RAM instances?

Hello! Would you consider offering 64 or 128MB RAM as an option for tasks? It would be nice to go lower than 256MB! I’ve been struggling with adding isolation between parallel instances of low-RAM native tasks with the functionality exposed by the firecracker environment, but if the net cost per VM could go any lower, I wouldn’t need to add application-layer isolation because I’d just spin up more VMs!

Thanks!

We’ve thought about it! We’ll likely do this someday, especially when we can boot these things very quickly. RAM is pretty cheap, though, it’s CPU that’s the bottleneck, so these types of VMs would probably get throttled CPUs as well.
