Starting today, Amazon EC2 M5n, M5dn, R5n, R5dn instances are available in the AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region. Based on the AWS Nitro System, these instances make 100 Gbps networking available to network-bound workloads, and Amazon Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) for low latency networking HPC/ML workloads. Customers can take advantage of this improved network performance to run a variety of network-bound workloads such as High Performance Computing (HPC), analytics, machine learning, Big Data, and data lake applications, as well as accelerate data transfer to and from Amazon S3, reducing the data ingestion time for applications and speeding up delivery of results. Workloads on these instances will continue to take advantage of the security, scalability and reliability of Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). These instances also support

Amazon EC2 M5 and R5 instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a collection of AWS-designed hardware and software innovations that enable the delivery of private networking, and efficient, flexible, and secure cloud services with isolated multi-tenancy.
