Starting today, you can now launch Amazon RDS for Oracle Z1d instances in the following additional AWS regions:

  • US East (Ohio), EU (London), Asia Pacific (Seoul), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai).

Amazon RDS for Oracle Z1d instances were launched in June 2019. The combination of high compute performance and high memory makes Z1d instances ideal for relational database workloads with high per-core licensing costs. Z1d instances use the Nitro system, a combination of dedicated hardware and a 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. To get started, please visit the Amazon RDS for Oracle user guide
