(AWS), an Amazon.com company, announced three new instance offerings for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2): (1) A1 instances—powered by custom-designed AWS Graviton processors for scale-out workloads. (2) P3dn GPU instances—ideal for distributed machine learning and high performance computing applications. (3) C5n instances—deliver increased network bandwidth for running advanced compute-intensive workloads. The new P3dn GPU and C5n compute optimized instances feature 100 Gbps networking throughput and enable scale-out of distributed workloads like high performance computing (HPC), machine learning training, and data analytics.”
The release goes on, “AWS also announced the availability of two new networking offerings: (1) Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA)—a network adapter for Amazon EC2 instances that delivers the performance of on-premises HPC clusters with AWS’s elasticity and scalability. (2) AWS Global Accelerator—a fully managed service that uses AWS’s global backbone and edge locations to improve the availability and performance of applications running in one or more AWS regions.
