Starting today, Amazon EC2 R5n instances are available in the Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan) Regions.

Based on the AWS Nitro System, these instances make 100 Gbps networking available to network-bound workloads, and Amazon Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) for low latency networking workloads. Customers can take advantage of this improved network performance to run a variety of network-bound workloads such as High Performance Computing (HPC), data analytics, machine learning (ML), Big Data, and data lake applications, as well as 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).

With this regional expansion, R5n instances are available in AWS US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (N. California, Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm, Milan), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney), Canada (Central), South America (Sao Paulo), Africa (Cape Town), and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

To get started with R5n instances, visit the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and AWS SDKs. To learn more, visit the Amazon EC2 R5 instance pages.
