Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) now supports the ability to add the recently launched P4d instances on Amazon ECS clusters in all regions where P4d instances are available. P4d instances offer up to 60% lower cost to train compared to previous generation instances with 2.5X more deep learning performance using the latest NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. These instances also offer 8 TB of local NVMe storage. P4d instances are currently available in the US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) regions. To learn more about P4d instances, please visit the P4d product page and news blog.

Customers can launch and add P4d instances to their Amazon ECS clusters with the latest version of the Amazon ECS GPU-optimized Amazon Machine Image (AMI) using the AWS CLI. To learn more about using GPU instances in your Amazon ECS clusters, please visit the Amazon ECS documentation.
