Introducing Amazon EC2 C7gd, M7gd, and R7gd Instances

AWS announces the general availability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) C7gd instances, Amazon EC2 M7gd instances, and Amazon EC2 R7gd instances with up to 3.8 TB of local NVMe-based SSD block-level storage. They have up to 45% improved real-time NVMe storage performance than comparable Graviton2-based instances. These instances are powered by AWS Graviton3 processors, delivering up to 25% better performance over Graviton2-based instances. These Graviton3-based instances feature the latest DDR5 memory, which provides 50% more memory bandwidth than DDR4. These instances are built on the AWS Nitro System and are great fit for applications that need access to high-speed, low latency local storage, including those that need temporary storage of data for scratch space, temporary files, and caches. C7gd instances are ideal for high performance computing (HPC), CPU-based machine learning (ML) inference, and ad serving. M7gd instances are ideal for general purpose workloads, such as application servers, microservices, and gaming servers. R7gd instances are ideal for memory-intensive workloads such as open-source databases, and real-time big data analytics.
