Amazon EC2 P3 instances are now available in the Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (London), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore) and China (Ningxia) AWS regions, bringing the total number of available regions to 14.
Powered by up to eight latest-generation NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs, Amazon EC2 P3 instances deliver up to 1 petaflop of mixed-precision performance per instance to significantly accelerate machine learning and high performance computing applications. Amazon EC2 P3 instances have helped developers and data scientists to reduce machine learning training times from days to hours as well as reduce time-to-results for high performance computing.
With broad availability across 14 regions, developers and data scientists can train their models or run their HPC workloads where their data resides.
Amazon EC2 P3 instances support all machine learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch and Apache MXNet and give developers and data scientists the freedom to choose the machine learning framework that works best for their application.
P3 instances are supported across all EC2 pricing options including On-Demand, Reserved and Spot Instances (at up to a 70% discount from On-Demand prices).
Customers can launch P3 instances with AWS Deep Learning AMIs to get started with machine learning quickly. This set of Linux AMIs are pre-installed with popular deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, MXNet and Gluon, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, Caffe2, Theano, Chainer, and Keras to train sophisticated, custom AI models, experiment with new algorithms, or to learn new skills and techniques.
