New – Amazon EC2 C6a Cases Powered By third Gen AMD EPYC Processors for Compute-Intensive Workloads

At AWS re:Invent 2021, we launched Amazon EC2 M6a situations powered by the third Gen AMD EPYC processors, operating at frequencies as much as 3.6 GHz, which supply clients as much as 35 p.c enchancment in price-performance in comparison with M5a situations.

Many shoppers are on the lookout for methods to optimize their cloud utilization, and they’re profiting from the compute alternative that Amazon EC2 presents. Clients comparable to Dropbox, Capital One, and Sprinklr have been capable of understand the price advantages of AWS utilizing EC2 situations powered by AMD EPYC processors.

Right now, I’m pleased to announce the provision of the brand new compute-optimized Amazon EC2 C6a situations, which supply as much as as much as 15 p.c enchancment in price-performance versus C5a situations, and 10 p.c decrease price than comparable x86-based EC2 situations.

These situations are perfect for operating compute-intensive workloads comparable to high-performance internet servers, batch processing, advert serving, machine studying, multi-player gaming, video encoding, excessive efficiency computing (HPC) comparable to scientific modeling, and machine studying.

In comparison with C5a situations, this new occasion sort offers:

To extend occasion safety, C6a situations have always-on reminiscence encryption with AMD Clear Single Key Reminiscence Encryption (TSME), and assist new AVX2 directions for accelerating encryption and decryption algorithms.

Like M6a, C6a situations are additionally obtainable in 10 sizes:

Title vCPUs Reminiscence
Community Bandwidth
EBS Throughput
c6a.giant 2 4 As much as 12.5 As much as 6.6
c6a.xlarge 4 8 As much as 12.5 As much as 6.6
c6a.2xlarge 8 16 As much as 12.5 As much as 6.6
c6a.4xlarge 16 32 As much as 12.5 As much as 6.6
c6a.8xlarge 32 64 12.5 6.6
c6a.12xlarge 48 96 18.75 10
c6a.16xlarge 64 128 25 13.3
c6a.24xlarge 96 192 37.5 20
c6a.32xlarge 128 256 50 26.6
c6a.48xlarge 192 384 50 40

The brand new situations are constructed on the AWS Nitro System, a group of constructing blocks that offloads most of the conventional virtualization capabilities to devoted {hardware} for top efficiency, excessive availability, and extremely safe cloud situations.

Accessible Now
C6a situations can be found at present in three AWS Areas: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Eire). As regular with EC2, you pay for what you utilize. For extra info, see the EC2 pricing web page.

To study extra, go to the EC2 C6a occasion and AWS/AMD companion web page. You’ll be able to ship suggestions to  ec2-amd-customer-feedback@amazon.comAWS re:Submit for EC2, or by your regular AWS Assist contacts.


PS – With the launch of C6a situations there are actually formally greater than 500 Amazon EC2 situations for purchasers to select from!
