Aws continues its ad sequence during the digital edition of re:Invent 2020, and does so by revealing five new Amazon EC2 instances.

C6gn AWS-based Graviton2 instances: the new C6gn AWS-based Graviton2 and Arm-based C6gn instances offer network performance of 100 Gbps (4 times higher than C6g) and EBS bandwidth from Currently, customers use optimized instances for the AWS network (e.g. C5n, M5n, R5n) for a variety of network-intensive workloads such as firewalls, routers and load balancing, video transcoding and analysis

However, as these instances have a limit in the maximum frequency of packets, some customers need to overprovision computing resources to increase the processing power of packets to get the desired actual network speed. C6gn instances offer the best package processing performance on EC2, allowing customers to perform migration to C6gn and consolidate workloads on a smaller number of instances or instance sizes and reduce infrastructure costs.

With the new instances of Amazon EC2 C6gn, AWS is expanding its Graviton2 portfolio to help customers meet the needs of network-intensive workloads while reducing costs.

C6gn supports Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), a network interface for EC2 that allows applications using most popular HPC technologies such as Message Passing Interface (MPI) to scale up to thousands of C cores C6gn instances will be available by the end of the month in eight sizes that provide up to 64 vCPU, 100 Gbps network bandwidth and 38 Gbps EBS bandwidth.

G4ad-optimized GPU-based graphics rooms AMD: new G4ad instances have AMD GPUs and CPUs to offer the lowest cost in Aws’ cloud for graphic-intensive applications, providing performance of

G4ad instances are equipped with the latest AMD Radeon Pro V520 GPUs and second generation AMD EPYC processors and offer up to 2.4 TB of local NVMe storage space for quick access to data. This allows customers to efficiently create photorealistic and high-resolution 3D content for movies, games and AR/VR experiences. With access to AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise at no extra cost, G4ad instances offer professional graphic rendering for virtual workstations. Customers who try to use remote workstations in the cloud to run graphic applications (e.g. ESRI ArcGIS Pro, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Maya or 3D Studio Max) can use G4ad instances to offer them G4ad instances will be available shortly in three sizes, with 1, 2 or 4 GPUs each.

Generic M5zn instants based on faster Intel Xeon scalable CPUs: the new M5zn instances offer the best single-thread performance offered by Intel Xeon Scalable (Cascade Lake) processors available in

Customers use Amazon EC2’s z1d instances when they need a high-frequency clock CPU (to perform single thread tasks faster and run multiple core processes) and low latency local storage for workloads such as

Although many customers will benefit from the high computing performance of the z1d instances, they do not always use the available local storage and memory, which results in overprovisioning calculation and leads to higher infrastructure costs.

Customers who perform complex calculations and real-time analysis for their financial, analytic and gaming workloads required an EC2 instance that balances faster computing performance, lower memory and higher effective network speed. M5zn instances offer a turbo all-core frequency of up to 4.5 GHz, 4 GiB memory for vCPU, 100 Gbps network bandwidth and are available in seven sizes (up to 48 vCPU and 192 gib memory).

M5zn instances offer performance for cores up to 45% better than M5 instances, allowing them to scale down instances to save infrastructure costs and reduce core software licenses. M5zn instances support elastic fabric adapter (EFA), which provides low latency, a high-speed effective network and the ability to scale up to tens of thousands of processor cores.

The combination of high performance for core and effective network speed makes M5zn instances ideal for gaming, analysis and simulation applications such as those used by the financial, automotive, aerospace, energy and telecommunications industries, where core performance is a bottleneck.

Optimized D3/D3en storage rooms with maximum capacity: New generation Intel-based storage optimized instances offer the maximum storage capacity of HDD instances in the AWS cloud.

New generation D3 instances offer up to 30% better processing performance and up to 2.5 times higher network performance than the D2 instances of the previous generation.

D3 instances are equipped with second generation Intel Xeon (Cascade Lake) processors with a supported all-core frequency of 3.1 GHz and offer up to 48 TB of storage space, 32 vCPU, 256 GiB of memory and

A new variant of extended storage and high-speed network, D3en instances, offers additional HDD storage capacity compared to D2 instances, offering 336 TB total storage space (7 times greater than D2) instances, 75 Gbps width

D3en instances offer the highest local HDD storage capacity in the Aws cloud, a reduction of up to 80% of the cost for TB compared to D2 instances and allow customers to design petabyte-scale file storage clusters so

Optimized R5b memory instants: New, enhanced memory optimized instances for Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) offer up to 60 Gbps bandwidth and 260,000 IOPS instance performance to EBS for the

Although R5 instances offer sufficient storage performance for many use cases, some customers have local workloads that would benefit from even greater EBS performance, including workloads of large commercial databases of SAP, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Ser

With 60 Gbps bandwidth and 260,000 IOPS, R5b instances increase the performance from instance to EBS by 3 times compared to R5 instances of the same size. This significantly increases performance for large database workloads that process large data sets in memory. The increase in R5b instance performance from instance to EBS allows customers to move high-intensity storage performance workloads as relational databases and data analysis from local data centers to AWS to achieve reduced cost and increased security, scale

R5b instances also support the EBS i2 Block Express volumes (preview) that allow customers to have a single durable EBS volume of 99.999% (five years) with a maximum of 256,000 IOPS and 4,000 MB/second Existing EC2 customers with storage-sensitive workloads can consolidate workloads on fewer R5b instances or on smaller instances by migrating from R5 to R5b. This allows them to reduce both infrastructure and licensing costs. R5b instances are supported by Amazon RDS for Oracle and Amazon RDS for SQL Server.
