At AWS re:Invent 2021, we launched Amazon EC2 M6a situations powered by the third Gen AMD EPYC processors, working at frequencies as much as three.6 GHz, which supply prospects as much as 35 p.c enchancment in price-performance in comparison with M5a situations.
Many purchasers are on the lookout for methods to optimize their cloud utilization, and they’re benefiting from the compute alternative that Amazon EC2 presents. Prospects comparable to Dropbox, Capital One, and Sprinklr have been capable of understand the price advantages of AWS utilizing EC2 situations powered by AMD EPYC processors.
Right now, I’m completely happy to announce the supply of the brand new compute-optimized Amazon EC2 C6a situations, which supply as much as as much as 15 p.c enchancment in price-performance versus C5a situations, and 10 p.c decrease value than comparable x86-based EC2 situations.
These situations are perfect for working compute-intensive workloads comparable to high-performance net servers, batch processing, advert serving, machine studying, multi-player gaming, video encoding, excessive efficiency computing (HPC) comparable to scientific modeling, and machine studying.
In comparison with C5a situations, this new occasion kind gives:
C6a situations help always-on reminiscence encryption with AMD Clear Single Key Reminiscence Encryption (TSME), and help new AVX2 directions for accelerating encryption and decryption algorithms.
Like M6a, C6a situations are additionally obtainable in 10 sizes:
|c6a.giant||2||four||As much as 12.5||As much as 6.6|
|c6a.xlarge||four||eight||As much as 12.5||As much as 6.6|
|c6a.2xlarge||eight||16||As much as 12.5||As much as 6.6|
|c6a.4xlarge||16||32||As much as 12.5||As much as 6.6|
The brand new situations are constructed on the AWS Nitro System, a group of constructing blocks that offloads most of the conventional virtualization features to devoted for prime efficiency, excessive availability, and extremely safe cloud situations.
Out there Now
C6a situations can be found right this moment in three AWS Areas: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Eire). As typical with EC2, you pay for what you utilize. For extra info, see the EC2 pricing web page.
To be taught extra, go to the EC2 C6a occasion and AWS/AMD companion web page. You possibly can ship suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org, AWS re:Submit for EC2, or by way of your typical AWS Assist contacts.
PS – With the launch of C6a situations there at the moment are formally greater than 500 Amazon EC2 situations for patrons to select from!
