Introducing Amazon EC2 M6id instances

Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces the general availability of new general purpose Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M6id instances. M6id instances are powered by third generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code name Ice Lake) with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz, equipped with up to 7.6 TB of local NVMe-based solid state disk (SSD) block-level storage, and deliver up to 15% better price performance compared to M5d instances. Compared to previous generation instances, M6id instances offer up to 58% higher TB storage per vCPU and 34% lower cost per TB. M6id instances also come with always-on memory encryption by using Intel Total Memory Encryption (TME). Like all modern EC2 instances, M6id instances are built on AWS Nitro System, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor, which delivers most of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances. M6id instances are ideal for workloads that require a balance of compute and memory resources along with high-speed, low-latency local block storage, including data logging and media processing. M6id instances will also benefit applications that need temporary storage of data, such as batch and log processing, and applications that need caches and scratch files.
