Amazon EC2 z1d Instances are Now Available in the UK (London) region

Posted on: Jun 6, 2019

Starting today, Amazon EC2 z1d instances are available in the Europe (London) region. 

Amazon EC2 z1d instances deliver high single thread performance due to a custom Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor with a sustained all core frequency of up to 4.0 GHz, the fastest of any cloud instance. z1d provides both high compute performance and high memory, which is ideal for electronic design automation (EDA), gaming, and certain relational database workloads with high per-core licensing costs. 

Amazon EC2 z1d instances come in 7 sizes, including bare metal instances that provide applications with direct access to the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor and memory resources of the underlying server. These instances are ideal for workloads that require access to the hardware feature set (such as Intel® VT-x), for applications that need to run in non-virtualized environments for licensing or support requirements, or for customers who wish to use their own hypervisor. 

With this expansion, EC2 z1d instances are now available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon and N. California), Europe (London, Frankfurt and Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo) AWS Regions.
