Amazon EC2 now offers increased instance bandwidth from AWS region to traffic destined towards Internet Gateway, Direct Connect and between regions for the current generation of instances.
Prior to this announcement, EC2 instance network bandwidth for traffic from AWS region destined to Internet Gateway, Direct Connect and other AWS regions was up to 5 Gbps for all instances. With this launch, current generation EC2 instances that have 32 vCPUs or higher can now drive higher bandwidth of up to 50% of instance network bandwidth to these destinations. For e.g. c5n.9xlarge has an instance network bandwidth of 50 Gbps; with this launch it can drive 25 Gbps to Internet Gateway, Direct Connect and other AWS regions. AWS customers can now leverage this increased instance network bandwidth to speed up data migration via Direct Connect, along with accessing services across regions or serving content to internet destinations.
EC2 instance network bandwidth increase from AWS region to Internet Gateway, Direct Connect and other AWS regions is now available in all AWS Commercial and GovCloud (US) regions.
