Five New EC2 Instances

AWS announced five new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, including the AWS Graviton2-powered C6gn instance, a compute- and network-heavy instance with up to 100 gigabits per second of network bandwidth.

Graviton2 is AWS’ next generation Arm-based chip designed by AWS and its Annapurna Labs. It gives customers 40 percent better price performance than the most recent generations of the x86 processors from other providers, according to AWS.

“We are not close to being done investing and inventing with Graviton,” Jassy said. “People are seeing a big difference. Graviton is saving people a lot of money.”

New AMD-powered G4ad Graphics Processing Unit instances are designed to improve performance and cut costs for graphics-intensive applications. They feature AMD’s latest Radeon Pro V520 GPUs and second-generation EPYC processors.

New M5zn instances offer the fastest Intel Xeon Scalable processors in the cloud with an all-core turbo frequency of up to 4.5 GHz and up to 45 percent better compute performance per core than current Amazon EC2 M5 instances, according to AWS.

Next-generation, Intel-powered D3/D3en instances offer cost-effective, high-capacity local storage-per-vCPU for massively scaled storage workloads. The next generation of dense HDD storage instances, they provide 30 percent higher processor performance, increased capacity and reduced cost compared to D2 instances, according to AWS. They also provide 2.5x higher networking speed and 45 percent higher disk throughput compared to D2 instances.

New memory-optimized R5b instances are designed to deliver 3x higher performance compared to the same-sized R5 instances for Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) and the fastest block storage performance available for Amazon EC2.
