Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) now supports new instance sizes within the Amazon EC2 compute-optimized, GPU, and dense SSD storage instance types that support EFA. Until now, EFA could be enabled for select bare-metal instances or for the largest instance size that support EFA. Starting today, you can associate EFA with additional sizes within Amazon C5, G4, and I3 instance types. By enabling EFA for smaller instance sizes that match the performance requirements of your application, you can lower costs.
EFA is a network interface for Amazon EC2 instances that enables customers to run applications requiring high levels of inter-node communications at scale on AWS.
