The 10 Coolest New AWS Tools Of 2022 (So Far)

Mark Haranas

From new deployment and configuring tools to EC2 instances, here are 10 cool AWS tools launched this year by the worldwide cloud market-share leader.

Amazon EC2 Hpc6 Instances For High-Performance Computing

This year, AWS launched the general availability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Hpc6a instances—a new instance type that is purpose-built for tightly coupled high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.

The HPC-focused instances aim to make it even more cost-efficient for customers to scale HPC clusters on AWS to run their most compute-intensive workloads such as genomics, computational fluid dynamics, weather forecasting, molecular dynamics, computational chemistry, financial risk modeling, computer-aided engineering and seismic imaging.

The new Hpc6a instances are purpose-built to offer the best price/performance for running HPC workloads at scale in the cloud. The instances are powered by third-generation AMD EPYC processors aimed at expanding AWS’ portfolio of HPC options.

AWS said Hpc6a instances deliver up to 65 percent better price/performance for HPC workloads to carry out complex calculations across a range of cluster sizes—up to tens of thousands of cores. Hpc6a instances are enabled with Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA)—a network interface for Amazon EC2 instances—by default. With EFA networking, customers benefit from low latency, low jitter and up to 100 Gbps of EFA networking bandwidth to increase operational efficiency and drive faster time-to-results for workloads.
