Now Available, Amazon EC2 C5ad instances featuring 2nd Generation AMD EPYC Processors

By GIXnews

Starting today, new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) C5ad instances featuring 2nd generation AMD EPYC™ processors running at frequencies up to 3.3 GHz are generally available. Amazon EC2 C5ad instances are variants of the recently launched C5a instances and are equipped with local NVMe-based SSD block level storage physically connected to the host server. C5ad instances provide high performance processing at 10% lower cost over comparable instances. These instances are ideal for applications that need temporary storage of data, such as batch and log processing and applications that need caches and scratch files. These instances are also a great fit for applications that need access to high-speed, low latency local storage, such as video encoding, image manipulation and other forms of media processing. With the option of NVMe-based SSD instance storage, C5a customers now have additional storage choices for their most compute-intensive workloads.
