Starting today, Amazon EC2 A1 instances are available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region. A1 instances, introduced at re:Invent 2018, are the first EC2 instances powered by AWS Graviton Processors that feature 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores and custom silicon designed by AWS. A1 instances deliver up to 45% cost savings for scale-out and Arm-based workloads. These include applications such as web servers, containerized microservices, caching fleets, and distributed data stores that are supported by the extensive Arm ecosystem. These instances will also appeal to developers, enthusiasts, and educators across the Arm developer community.
With these additional regional launches, A1 instances are now available in the US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo), and Europe (Frankfurt and Ireland) AWS Regions. A1 instances are available in 5 sizes, with 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 vCPUs and as bare metal instances providing 16 physical cores. They are purchasable as On-Demand, Reserved, Spot and as Dedicated Instances or Dedicated Hosts.
