Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports z1d instance types. Amazon EC2 z1d instances deliver a sustained all core frequency of up to 4.0 GHz, the fastest of any cloud instance.

The combination of high compute performance and high memory makes z1d instances ideal for certain relational database workloads with high per-core licensing costs. z1d instances use the Nitro system, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your database instance.

Amazon RDS for Oracle makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale Oracle Database deployments in the cloud. Please refer to the Amazon RDS for Oracle pricing page for complete information on regional availability.
