Amazon EC2 D3 Instances are now available in AWS Canada (Central) Region

Starting today, Amazon EC2 D3 instances, the latest generation of the dense HDD-storage instances, are available in the AWS Canada (Central) Region. D3 instances are powered by 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors (Cascade Lake) with a sustained all core frequency up to 3.1 GHz. D3 instances provide up to 2.5x higher networking speed and 45% higher disk throughput compared to D2 instances. These instances are an ideal fit for workloads including distributed / clustered file systems, big data and analytics, and high capacity data lakes. With D3 instances, you can easily migrate from previous generation D2 instances or on-premises infrastructure to a platform optimized for dense HDD storage workloads.
