Amazon MQ now supports four new M5 broker instances that enable you to scale your brokers to meet higher throughput requirements.  

Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ that makes it easy to set up and operate message brokers in the cloud. The new M5 instances offer higher CPU power and network capacity that will benefit many use cases, including non-persistent messaging, fast consumers, and batched transactions. The new default production instance, mq.m5.large, is also offered at a price of 2.7% to 5.3% less than the previous default, mq.m4.large. Pricing varies by region. For more information about pricing, see the Amazon MQ pricing page.

The new instances are mq.m5.large, mq.m5.xlarge, mq.m5.2xlarge, and mq.m5.4xlarge. Including previously launched instances, mq.t2.micro and mq.m4.large, Amazon MQ now supports six instances.

M5 instances are available in all regions where Amazon MQ is available: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific (Sydney).
