Adam Selipsky re:Invent Keynote: 8 Big New AWS Products
From the new AWS Supply Chain and Amazon DataZone solutions to AWS SimSpace Weaver and EC2 Hpc6id Instances, CEO Adam Selipsky talks about eight big launches during his keynote at AWS re:Invent 2022.
Amazon EC2 Hpc6id Instances: AWS Offers ‘Best Price Performance’
AWS unveiled its new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Hpc6id instances for high performance computing (HPC).
“Hpc6id instances are designed to deliver leading price performance for data, memory intensive HPC workloads, higher memory bandwidth, faster local SSD storage and enhanced networking with [AWS] Elastic Fabric Adapter,” said Selipsky. “AWS offers HPC instances with best price performance for each your specific workflow.”
Additionally, Selipsky said the new Hpc6id instances are optimized to efficiently run memory bandwidth-bound, data-intensive HPC workloads such as finite element analysis and seismic reservoir simulations.
“With EC2 Hpc6id instances, you can lower the cost of your HPC workloads while taking advantage of the elasticity and scalability of AWS,” he said.
EC2 Hpc6id instances are powered by 64 cores of 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz, 1,024 GB of memory, and up to 15.2 TB of local NVMe SSD storage, according to AWS.
EC2 Hpc6id instances, built on the AWS Nitro System, offer 200 Gbps Elastic Fabric Adapter networking for high-throughput inter-node communications that enable customers HPC workloads to run at scale.
