Starting today, Amazon EC2 C5n instances are available in AWS Africa (Cape Town) region.

Based on the next generation AWS Nitro System, these instances make 100 Gbps networking available to network-bound workloads without requiring customers to use custom drivers or recompile applications. Customers can also take advantage of this improved network performance to 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). A wide range of applications such as High Performance Computing (HPC), analytics, machine learning, Big Data and data lake applications can benefit from these instances.
