AWS Graviton2-based T4g database instances are now available in Europe (Milan), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm) regions for Amazon Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition and Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition.

These instances are powered by the AWS Graviton2 processors that are custom designed by AWS using 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores. AWS Graviton2 processors deliver a major leap in performance and capabilities over first-generation AWS Graviton processors, with 7x performance, 4x the number of compute cores, 2x larger caches, and 5x faster memory. AWS Graviton2 processors feature always-on 256-bit DRAM encryption and 50% faster per core encryption performance compared to the first-generation AWS Graviton processors. These performance improvements make Graviton2 database instances a great choice for database workloads.

You can launch T4g instances in the Amazon RDS Management Console or using the AWS CLI. Upgrading a database instance to Graviton2 requires a simple instance type modification, using the same steps as any other instance modification. For more details, refer to the documentation.
