G2 Instances are now available in our Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region. G2 instances are designed for applications that require 3D graphics capabilities. The instance is backed by a high-performance NVIDIA GPU, making it ideally suited for video creation services, 3D visualizations, streaming graphics-intensive applications, and other server-side workloads requiring massive parallel processing power. With this new instance type, customers can build high-performance DirectX, OpenGL, CUDA, and OpenCL applications and services without making expensive up-front capital investments.

Customers can launch G2 instances using the AWS console, Amazon EC2 command line interface, AWS SDKs and third party libraries. To learn more about G2 instances, visit Amazon EC2 details page. To get started immediately, visit the AWS Marketplace for GPU machine images from NVIDIA and other Marketplace sellers.
