We are excited to announce the availability of the m4.16xlarge, the largest instance size in the latest generation of EC2 General Purpose instances, featuring 64 vCPUs and 256 GiB of memory. The m4.16xlarge offers a balance of compute, memory, and network resources, and is a good choice for many applications including databases, data processing tasks, cluster computing, and web servers that require high computational horsepower or memory size.

m4.16xlarge instances are based on the latest generation of Intel Xeon E5-2686 v4 Broadwell processors that are optimized specifically for EC2. With new Elastic Network Adaptor (ENA) low-latency Enhanced Networking, m4.16xlarge instances feature up to 20 Gbps of network bandwidth when used within a placement group. m4.16xlarge instances are EBS-optimized by default at no additional cost, and provide 10,000 Mbps of dedicated throughput to EBS.

m4.16xlarge instances are offered as On-Demand, Spot or Reserved Instances. They are available in all AWS regions, which are the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (San Francisco), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Bombay), Asia Pacific (Seoul), China (Beijing), Brazil (Sao Paolo), and GovCloud (US) regions.
