    Hello Rumman,

    Thanks for bringing up the question.

    A Dedicated Host is a physical server with EC2 instance capacity fully dedicated to your use. While Dedicated instances are physically isolated at the host hardware level from instances that belong to other AWS accounts.

    In short:

    Dedicated Host = dedicated server

    Dedicated Instance = shared hardware

    The table below highlights the key similarities and differences in the features available to you when using Dedicated Hosts and Dedicated instances.

    For more information about Amazon EC2, you can check out this AWS Cheat Sheet.
