Starting today, Amazon EC2 C5n instances are available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt), and AWS GovCloud (US-East) Regions. C5n instances, first introduced in November of 2018, are variants of C5 instances with significantly higher network performance across all instance sizes, ranging from 25 Gbps of peak bandwidth on smaller instance sizes to 100 Gbps of network bandwidth on the largest instance size. In addition, C5n instances also feature 33% higher memory footprint compared to C5 instances. C5n instances are ideal for applications that can take advantage of improved network throughput and packet rate performance.

With these additional regional launches, C5n instances are now available in US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt and Ireland), and AWS GovCloud (US-East and US-West) AWS Regions. Customers can use C5n instances as On-Demand, Reserved or Spot Instances. C5n instances are available in 6 sizes, with 2, 4, 8, 16, 36, and 72 vCPUs and are purchasable as On-Demand, Reserved, Spot and as Dedicated Instances or Dedicated Hosts.
