New – Amazon EC2 C5a Instances Powered By 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors

This post was originally published on this site

Over the last 18 months, we have launched AMD-powered M5a and R5a/M5ad and R5ad, and T3a instances to provide customers additional choice for running their general purpose and memory intensive workloads. Built on the AWS Nitro System, these instances are powered by custom 1st generation AMD EPYC™ processors. These instances are priced 10% lower than comparable EC2 M5, R5, and T3 instances, and provide you with options to balance your instance mix based on cost and performance.

Today, I am excited to announce the general availability of compute-optimized C5a instances featuring 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors, running at frequencies up to 3.3 GHz, are generally available. C5a instances are variants of Amazon EC2’s compute-optimized (C5) instance family and provide high performance processing at 10% lower cost over comparable instances. C5a instances are ideal for a broad set of compute-intensive workloads including batch processing, distributed analytics, data transformations, log analysis, and web applications.

You can launch C5a instances today in eight sizes in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions in On-Demand, Spot, and Reserved Instance or as part of a Savings Plan. Here are the specs:

Instance Name vCPUs RAM EBS-Optimized Bandwidth Network Bandwidth
c5a.large
2 4 GiB Up to 3.170 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.xlarge
4 8 GiB Up to 3.170 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.2xlarge
8 16 GiB Up to 3.170 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.4xlarge
16 32 GiB Up to 3.170 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.8xlarge
32 64 GiB 3.170 Gbps 10 Gbps
c5a.12xlarge
48 96 GiB 4.750 Gbps 12 Gbps
c5a.16xlarge
64 128 GiB 6.3 Gbps 20 Gbps
c5a.24xlarge
96 192 GiB 9.5 Gbps 20 Gbps

But wait, there’s more! Disk variants, C5ad, that come with fast, local NVMe instance storage and bare metal variants, C5an.metal and C5adn.metal, are coming soon.

The C5a instances will be supported across a broad set of AWS services that support C5 today, including AWS Batch, Amazon EMR, Elastic Container Service (ECS), and Elastic Kubernetes Service(EKS). C5a are fully-compatible 64-bit x86 and managed by the same Nitro platform used across Amazon EC2. Again, these instances are available in similar sizes as the C5 instances, and the AMIs work on either, so go ahead and try both!
