Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Intel share a passion for delivering constant innovation and value.

The latest Intel® Xeon® processors are utilized by AWS, providing customers with high performance and value, and the ability to choose Amazon EC2 instance types that best meet their performance needs for compute intensive, memory intensive, or IOPS intensive applications.

Intel also makes it easy for AWS customers to launch Intel software in the AWS Cloud, such as the Intel Lustre HPC file system, by making them available on AWS Marketplace.

The latest Intel Xeon processors are utilized, providing customers with high performance and value, and the ability to choose Amazon EC2 instance types that best meet their performance needs for compute intensive, memory intensive, or IOPS intensive applications.

Advanced Intel features offered on Intel Xeon E5 processors in select Amazon EC2 instance types include:

  • Intel AES-NI – Intel processors that support Intel Advanced Encryption Standard – New Instructions allow you to enable encryption for enhanced data security without paying a performance penalty.
  • Intel AVX – With Intel Advanced Vector Extensions, get dramatically better performance for highly parallel HPC workloads such as life science engineering, data mining, financial analysis, or other technical computing applications. AVX also enhances image, video, and audio processing.
  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology – Get a clock rate boost of compute speed, accelerating performance for peak loads. Appropriate for traditional non-parallel workloads.
