Amazon Elasticsearch Service now offers instances from the AWS Graviton2 instance family. Instance types include general purpose (M6g), compute optimized (C6g), and memory optimized (R6g, R6gd). Customers can enjoy up to 38% improvement in indexing throughput, 50% reduction in indexing latency, and 30% improvement in query performance when compared to the corresponding x86-based instances from the current generation (M5, C5, R5).
Amazon EC2 M6g, C6g and R6g instances and their disk variants are powered by AWS Graviton2 processors that are built utilizing 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores and custom silicon designed by AWS. AWS Graviton2 processors deliver a major leap in performance and capabilities. AWS Graviton2 instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a collection of AWS-designed hardware and software innovations that enable the delivery of efficient, flexible, and secure cloud services with isolated multi-tenancy, private networking, and fast local storage. Amazon Elasticsearch Service Graviton2 instances come in sizes large through 16xlarge and offer compute, memory, and storage flexibility.
Amazon Elasticsearch Service Graviton2 instances support Elasticsearch version 7.9 and above. The instances also include support for all recently launched features like encryption at rest and in-flight, role-based access control, cross-cluster search, Auto-Tune, Trace Analytics, Kibana Reporting, and UltraWarm.
Amazon Elasticsearch Service Graviton2 instances provide up to 44% price/performance improvement over previous generation instances. Further savings are available via reserved instance (RI) pricing for these instances.
