Amazon EC2 X2gd Instances

Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2) X2gd instances are AWS’ next generation of memory-optimized instances powered by AWS-designed, Arm-based Graviton2 processors and built on the AWS Nitro System.

Announced in March, the EC2 X2gd instances deliver up to 55 percent better price performance for memory-intensive workloads than current-generation x86-based X1 instances, according to the cloud provider, and offer the lowest cost per GiB of memory in Amazon EC2. They also offer increased memory per vCPU compared to AWS’ other Graviton2-based instances, including twice as much memory per vCPU as the memory-optimized R6g instances.

The EC2 X2gd instances support memory-intensive workloads including in-memory databases such as Redis and Memcached, relational databases such as MySQL and PostGreSQL, data warehousing applications such as Amazon Redshift and electronic design automation, according to AWS. Customers also can bundle more memory-intensive containerized applications on a single instance to lower their total cost of ownership.

The new EC2 instances are available in eight sizes and in bare metal form.
