Starting today, Amazon EC2 R5, R5d, C5d, and M5d instances are available in the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) AWS Region.
Amazon EC2 R5 instances are the next generation of memory optimized instances for the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. R5 instances are well suited for memory intensive applications such as high performance databases, distributed web scale in-memory caches, mid-size in-memory databases, real time big data analytics, and other enterprise applications. Additionally, R5d instances have local storage, offering up to 3.6TB of NVMe-based SSDs. Customers looking to further boost the performance of their workloads, such as in-memory databases, can take advantage of R5d instances with instance storage to improve memory swap performance. R5d instances offer up to 3.6TB of NVMe-based SSDs and are available in the same sizes as R5 instances.
Amazon EC2 C5d instances are the next generation of the Amazon EC2 Compute Optimized instance family with local NVMe-based SSD block level storage physically connected to the host server. These instances are a great fit for applications that need access to high-speed, low latency local storage like video encoding, image manipulation and other forms of media processing. It will also benefit applications that need temporary storage of data, such as batch and log processing and applications that need caches and scratch files.
Amazon EC2 M5d Instances are the next generation of the Amazon EC2 General Purpose compute instances with local NVMe-based SSDs that are physically connected to the host server and provide block-level storage that is coupled to the lifetime of the M5d instance. M5d instances offer a balance of compute, memory, and networking resources for a broad range of workloads. This includes web and application servers, back-end servers for enterprise applications, gaming servers, caching fleets, and app development environments.
Amazon EC2 C5 and M5 instances are already available in the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) AWS region. To learn more, visit the EC2 instance types page.
