AMD Announces EPYC Processors Now Available on Amazon Web Services

Three New Deploy짯ments on Ama짯zon EC2 Ins짯tances Mark Next Signi짯fi짯cant Mile짯stone for AMD EPYC in the Datacenter

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Today at Next Hori짯zon, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Ama짯zon Web Ser짯vices, announ짯ced the imme짯dia짯te avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty of the first AMD EPYCTM pro짯ces짯sor-based ins짯tances on Ama짯zon Ela짯s짯tic Com짯pu짯te Cloud (EC2). Part of the most popu짯lar AWS ins짯tance fami짯lies, the new AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sor powered offe짯rings fea짯ture indus짯try lea짯ding core den짯si짯ty and memo짯ry band짯width. This results in excep짯tio짯nal per짯for짯mance per dol짯lar for gene짯ral pur짯po짯se and memo짯ry opti짯mi짯zed workloads. The cost savings are dri짯ven by the core den짯si짯ty of AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors that offer M5 and T3 ins짯tance cus짯to짯mers a balan짯ce of com짯pu짯te, memo짯ry, and net짯wor짯king resour짯ces for web and appli짯ca짯ti짯on ser짯vers, backend ser짯vers for enter짯pri짯se appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, and test/development envi짯ron짯ments with seam짯less appli짯ca짯ti짯on migra짯ti짯on. For R5 ins짯tance cus짯to짯mers, the memo짯ry band짯width advan짯ta짯ge of AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors is ide짯al for in-memo짯ry pro짯ces짯sing, data mining, and dyna짯mic data processing.

The avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty of mul짯ti짯ple AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sor-powered ins짯tances on Ama짯zon EC2 ins짯tances marks a signi짯fi짯cant mile짯stone in the gro짯wing adop짯ti짯on of our high-per짯for짯mance CPUs with cloud ser짯vice pro짯vi짯ders, said For짯rest Nor짯rod, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Dat짯a짯cen짯ter and Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons Busi짯ness Group, AMD. 쏷he powerful com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on of cores, memo짯ry band짯width and I/O on AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors crea짯te a high짯ly dif짯fe짯ren짯tia짯ted solu짯ti짯on that can offer lower TCO for our cus짯to짯mers and lower pri짯ces for the end-user. Working with AWS, the num짯ber one pro짯vi짯der in cloud ser짯vices, has been ama짯zing for the AMD team and we are exci짯ted to see the new ins짯tances come online today for their customers.

The new ins짯tances are available as vari짯ants of Ama짯zon EC2셲 memo짯ry opti짯mi짯zed and gene짯ral pur짯po짯se ins짯tance fami짯lies. AMD-based R5 and M5 ins짯tances can be laun짯ched via the AWS Manage짯ment Con짯so짯le or AWS Com짯mand Line Inter짯face and are available today in US East (Ohio, N. Vir짯gi짯nia), US West (Ore짯gon), Euro짯pe (Ire짯land) and Asia Paci짯fic regi짯ons, with avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty in addi짯tio짯nal regi짯ons plan짯ned soon. AMD-based T3 ins짯tances will be available in the coming weeks. AMD-based M5 and R5 ins짯tances are available in six sizes with up to 96 vCPUs, up to 768 GB of memo짯ry. AMD-based T3 ins짯tances will be available in 7 sizes with up to 8 vCPUs and 32 GB of memo짯ry. The new ins짯tances can be purcha짯sed as On-Demand, Reser짯ved, or Spot instances.
