We launched the primary Graviton-powered EC2 cases in late 2018 and introduced the follow-on Graviton2 processor only a 12 months later. The twin SIMD models, help for int8 and fp16 directions, and different architectural enhancements between generations mix to make the Graviton2 a extremely cost-effective workhorse processor.
At the moment, you may select between Basic Function (M6g and M6gd), Compute-Optimized (C6g, C6gn, and C6gd), Reminiscence-Optimized (R6g and R6gd), and Burstable (T4g) cases, all powered by quick, environment friendly Graviton2 processors. Our clients use these cases to run utility servers, gaming servers, HPC workloads, video encoding, advert servers, and extra. A number of benchmarks (together with this one and this one) have proven that these Graviton2-based cases ship higher price-performance than current EC2 cases.
New X2gd Cases
I’m blissful to announce the newest in our ever-growing roster of Graviton2-powered cases! The brand new X2gd cases have twice as a lot reminiscence per vCPU because the memory-optimized R6g cases, and are designed on your memory-hunger workloads. This consists of in-memory databases (Redis and Memcached), open supply relational databases, Digital Design Automation design & verification, real-time analytics, caching companies, and containers.
X2gd cases can be found in eight sizes, and likewise in naked metallic type. Listed here are the specs:
|Native NVMe Storage||Community Bandwidth
|x2gd.medium||1||16||1 x 59 GiB||As much as 10||As much as four.750|
|x2gd.massive||2||32||1 x 118 GiB||As much as 10||As much as four.750|
|x2gd.xlarge||four||64||1 x 237 GiB||As much as 10||As much as four.750|
|x2gd.2xlarge||eight||128||1 x 475 GiB||As much as 10||As much as four.750|
|x2gd.4xlarge||16||256||1 x 950 GiB||As much as 10||four.750|
|x2gd.8xlarge||32||512||1 x 1900 GiB||12||9.500|
|x2gd.12xlarge||48||768||2 x 1425 GiB||20||14.250|
|x2gd.16xlarge||64||1024||2 x 1900 GiB||25||19.000|
|x2gd.metallic||64||1024||2 x 1900 GiB||25||19.000|
When in comparison with the present X1 cases, the brand new X2gd cases provide 55% higher value/perfomance. The X2gd cases additionally provide the bottom value per GiB of reminiscence of any present EC2 occasion.
On the compute aspect, the X2gd cases present the identical quantity of CPU energy as the opposite Graviton2-powered cases (M6g, C6g, R6g, and T4g). Every vCPU is a whole bodily core, which speeds compute-heavy EDA and monetary service workloads, and likewise encourages denser packing of containers onto an occasion of a specific dimension.
Along with the quick SSD-based native NVMe storage, X2gd cases help Elastic Community Adapter (ENA), and might ship as much as 25 Gbps of community bandwidth between cases when launched inside a Placement Group.
X2gd cases are constructed on AWS Nitro System, and you should use your current Arm-compatible EC2 AMIs.
Now Out there
X2gd cases can be found now within the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Eire) Areas, with extra areas to return. You’ll be able to launch them at present in On-Demand and Spot type, and you should purchase Financial savings Plans or Reserved Cases.
