Amazon EC2 I4i metal instances are now available

Starting today, Amazon EC2 I4i metal instances are available in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Regions – US East (Ohio and N. Virginia), US West (Oregon) and Europe (Ireland). Designed for storage I/O intensive workloads, I4i instances are powered by 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code named Ice Lake) with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz, offer up to 30% better compute price performance over I3 instances, and always-on memory encryption using Intel Total Memory Encryption (TME). I4i metal instances deliver the highest local storage performance within Amazon EC2 and are designed for databases such as MySQL, Oracle DB, and Microsoft SQL Server, and NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, Couchbase, Aerospike, and Redis where low latency local NVMe storage is needed in order to meet application service level agreements (SLAs).
