We just lately launched Amazon EC2 M6i situations powered by the most recent technology Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with an all-core turbo frequency of three.5 GHz, which supply prospects as much as 15% enchancment in value efficiency in comparison with M5 situations.
Immediately, I’m comfortable to announce the supply of the brand new compute-optimized Amazon EC2 C6i situations, which supply as much as 15% enchancment in value efficiency for a wide range of workloads, versus comparable C5 situations. These situations are perfect for working compute-intensive workloads equivalent to batch processing, machine studying, high-end gaming, excessive efficiency computing (HPC) workloads, advert serving, and video encoding.
In comparison with C5 situations utilizing an Intel processor, this new occasion sort offers:
- As much as 15% enchancment in compute value efficiency.
- As much as 9% increased reminiscence bandwidth.
- As much as 40 Gbps for Amazon Elastic Block Retailer (EBS) and 50 Gbps for networking.
- All the time-on reminiscence encryption.
Like M6i, C6i situations can be found in 9 sizes:
|c6i.giant||2||four||As much as 12.5||As much as 10|
|c6i.xlarge||four||eight||As much as 12.5||As much as 10|
|c6i.2xlarge||eight||16||As much as 12.5||As much as 10|
|c6i.4xlarge||16||32||As much as 12.5||As much as 10|
The brand new situations are constructed on the AWS Nitro System, a group of constructing blocks that offloads most of the conventional virtualization capabilities to devoted for prime efficiency, excessive availability, and extremely safe cloud situations.
As you need to do with M6i situations, for optimum networking efficiency, improve your Elastic Community Adapter (ENA) drivers to model three. For extra info, see this text about migrating an EC2 occasion to a sixth-generation occasion within the AWS Information Middle.
C6i situations assist Elastic Material Adapter (EFA) on the c6i.32xlarge dimension for workloads that may profit from decrease community latency, equivalent to HPC and video processing.
C6i situations can be found at present in 4 AWS Areas: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon), and EU (Eire). As traditional with EC2, you pay for what you utilize. For extra info, see the EC2 pricing web page.
To study extra, go to the EC2 C6i occasion web page. You may ship suggestions to the AWS discussion board for Amazon EC2 or by your traditional AWS Help contacts.
