Amazon EC2 M6a and C6a instances now available in additional regions

Starting today, the general-purpose Amazon EC2 M6a instances are now available in US East (Ohio) and Europe (Frankfurt). Additionally, compute-optimized Amazon EC2 C6a instances are now available in US East (Ohio), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), and Europe (Frankfurt). M6a and C6a instances are powered by 3rd generation AMD EPYC (code named Milan) processors with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.6 GHz. M6a instances deliver up to 35% better price performance compared to M5a instances, while C6a instances deliver up to 15% better price performance compared to C5a instances. Both M6a and C6a instances offer 10% lower cost than comparable x86-based EC2 instances. M6a and C6a instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor, which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances. M6a instances are SAP-Certified and a good fit for workloads such as web and application servers, back-end servers supporting enterprise applications, web servers, micro-services, multi-player gaming servers, caching fleets, as well as for application development environments. C6a instances are well suited for compute-intensive applications like batch processing, distributed analytics, high performance computing (HPC), ad serving, highly-scalable multiplayer gaming, and video encoding.
