Pos짯ted On: Aug 11, 2020

Start짯ing today, Ama짯zon EC2 C5a ins짯tances have expan짯ded avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty to include AWS Euro짯pe (Stock짯holm), Asia Paci짯fic (Hong Kong), Asia Paci짯fic (Tokyo), Asia Paci짯fic (Seo짯ul), Euro짯pe (Lon짯don), US West (N. Cali짯for짯nia) and Cana짯da (Cen짯tral) Regi짯ons. In addi짯ti짯on, 8xlarge and 16xlarge sizes of Ama짯zon EC2 M5ad and R5ad ins짯tances are now available in the US East (N. Vir짯gi짯nia) Region.

Ama짯zon EC2 C5a ins짯tances were laun짯ched in June of 2020. C5a ins짯tances fea짯ture 2nd gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD EPYC꽓 7002 series pro짯ces짯sors run짯ning at fre짯quen짯ci짯es up to 3.3 GHz, and are vari짯ants of the Ama짯zon EC2 com짯pu짯te opti짯mi짯zed (C5) fami짯ly of ins짯tances. M5ad and R5ad ins짯tances were laun짯ched in March of 2019. The짯se ins짯tances are vari짯ants of Ama짯zon EC2 gene짯ral pur짯po짯se (M5) and memo짯ry opti짯mi짯zed (R5) ins짯tances and fea짯ture AMD EPYC꽓 7000 series pro짯ces짯sors with an all core tur짯bo clock speed of up to 2.5 GHz as well as NVMe-based SSD block level ins짯tance sto짯rage phy짯si짯cal짯ly con짯nec짯ted to the host server.

The짯se EC2 ins짯tances fea짯turing AMD pro짯ces짯sors pro짯vi짯de opti짯ons for cus짯to짯mers who are loo짯king to achie짯ve a 10% cost savings on their Ama짯zon EC2 com짯pu짯te envi짯ron짯ment for a varie짯ty of workloads. C5a ins짯tances are ide짯al for a broad set of com짯pu짯te-inten짯si짯ve workloads inclu짯ding batch pro짯ces짯sing, dis짯tri짯bu짯ted ana짯ly짯tics, data trans짯for짯ma짯ti짯ons, log ana짯ly짯sis, gam짯ing, and web appli짯ca짯ti짯ons. M5ad ins짯tances are ide짯al for workloads that requi짯re a balan짯ce of com짯pu짯te and memo짯ry resour짯ces along with high-speed, low laten짯cy local block sto짯rage inclu짯ding data log짯ging and media pro짯ces짯sing. R5ad ins짯tances are ide짯al for memo짯ry inten짯si짯ve workloads such as high-per짯for짯mance data짯ba짯ses, dis짯tri짯bu짯ted in-memo짯ry caches, in-memo짯ry data짯ba짯ses, and big data ana짯ly짯tics. Both M5ad and R5ad will also be bene짯fi짯ci짯al for appli짯ca짯ti짯ons that need tem짯po짯ra짯ry sto짯rage of data for scratch space, tem짯po짯ra짯ry files, and caches.

With this regio짯nal expan짯si짯on, C5a ins짯tances are now available across US East (N. Vir짯gi짯nia, Ohio), US West (N. Cali짯for짯nia, Ore짯gon), Euro짯pe (Ire짯land, Frank짯furt, Stock짯holm, Lon짯don), Asia Paci짯fic (Sin짯ga짯po짯re, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seo짯ul, Syd짯ney) and Cana짯da (Cen짯tral) Regi짯ons. C5a ins짯tances are available in 8 sizes, with 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 48, 64 and 96 vCPUs. The짯se ins짯tances can be purcha짯sed as On-Demand, Reser짯ved, Spot Ins짯tances or as part of a Savings Plan.
