Amazon EC2 G4 instances which provide industry’s most cost-effective GPU platform for deploying machine learning models in production and graphics-intensive applications are now available in the Asia Pacific (Hong Kong) and Middle East (Bahrain) AWS regions, bringing the total number of available regions to 19.
G4 instances provide the latest generation NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPUs, AWS custom second generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable (Cascade Lake) processors, up to 50 Gbps of networking throughput, and up to 900 GB of local NVMe storage. The bare metal G4 instance that is coming soon will offer 100 Gbps of networking throughput and 1.8 TB of local NVMe storage.
EC2 G4 instances are optimized for machine learning application deployments such as image classification, object detection, recommendation engines, automated speech recognition and language translation. These instances are also cost-effective solutions for graphics-intensive applications such as remote graphics workstations, video transcoding and game streaming in the cloud. EC2 G4 instances are offered in different instance sizes with access to one GPU or multiple GPUs with different amounts of vCPU and memory to give you the flexibility to pick the right instance size for your applications.
