New – Amazon EC2 X2iezn Instances Powered by the Fastest Intel Xeon Scalable CPU for Memory-Intensive Workloads

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) workloads require high computing performance and a large memory footprint. These workloads are sensitive to faster CPU performance and higher clock speeds since the faster performance allows more jobs to be completed on the lower number of cores. At AWS re:Invent 2020, we launched Amazon EC2 M5zn instances which use second-generation Read more about New – Amazon EC2 X2iezn Instances Powered by the Fastest Intel Xeon Scalable CPU for Memory-Intensive Workloads[…]

New – Amazon EC2 Hpc6a Instance Optimized for High Performance Computing

High Performance Computing (HPC) allows scientists and engineers to solve complex, compute-intensive problems such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD), weather forecasting, and genomics. HPC applications typically require instances with high memory bandwidth, a low latency, high bandwidth network interconnect and access to a fast parallel file system. Many customers have turned to AWS to run Read more about New – Amazon EC2 Hpc6a Instance Optimized for High Performance Computing[…]

Use New Amazon EC2 M1 Mac Instances to Build & Test Apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV

Last year at AWS re:Invent, Jeff Barr wrote about the exciting availability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Mac instances. Today, we’re announcing the preview of a new EC2 M1 Mac instance. The introduction of EC2 Mac instances brought the flexibility, scalability, and cost benefits of AWS to all Apple developers. EC2 Mac instances Read more about Use New Amazon EC2 M1 Mac Instances to Build & Test Apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV[…]

New – Recycle Bin for EBS Snapshots

It is easy to create EBS Snapshots, and just as easy to either delete them manually or to use the Data Lifecycle Manager to delete them automatically in accord with your organization’s retention model. Sometimes, as it turns out, it is a bit too easy to delete snapshots, and a well-intended cleanup effort or a Read more about New – Recycle Bin for EBS Snapshots[…]

New – Amazon EC2 R6i Memory-Optimized Instances Powered by the Latest Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

In August, we introduced the general-purpose Amazon EC2 M6i instances powered by the latest generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code-named Ice Lake) with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz. Compute-optimized EC2 C6i instances were also made available last month. Today, I am happy to share that we are expanding our sixth-generation x86-based offerings to Read more about New – Amazon EC2 R6i Memory-Optimized Instances Powered by the Latest Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors[…]

New – EC2 Instances (G5) with NVIDIA A10G Tensor Core GPUs

Two years ago I told you about the then-new G4 instances, which featured up to eight NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPUs. These instances were designed to give you cost-effective GPU power for machine learning inference and graphics-intensive applications. Today I am happy to tell you about the new G5 instances, which feature up to eight Read more about New – EC2 Instances (G5) with NVIDIA A10G Tensor Core GPUs[…]

New – Attribute-Based Instance Type Selection for EC2 Auto Scaling and EC2 Fleet

The first AWS service I used, more than ten years ago, was Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Over time, EC2 has added a wide selection of instance types optimized to fit different use cases, with a varying combination of CPU/GPU, memory, storage, and networking capacity to give you the flexibility to choose the appropriate Read more about New – Attribute-Based Instance Type Selection for EC2 Auto Scaling and EC2 Fleet[…]

New – EC2 Instances Powered by Gaudi Accelerators for Training Deep Learning Models

There are more applications today for deep learning than ever before. Natural language processing, recommendation systems, image recognition, video recognition, and more can all benefit from high-quality, well-trained models. The process of building such a model is iterative: construct an initial model, train it on the ground truth data, do some test inferences, refine the Read more about New – EC2 Instances Powered by Gaudi Accelerators for Training Deep Learning Models[…]
