Starting today, Amazon EC2 C6gd instances powered by AWS Graviton2 processors are available in Europe (Stockholm) region. C6gd instances are ideal for compute-intensive workloads such as high performance computing (HPC), batch processing, ad serving, video encoding, gaming, scientific modelling, distributed analytics, and CPU-based machine learning inference. The local SSD storage provided on these instances will benefit applications that need access to high-speed, low latency storage, as well as for temporary storage of data such as batch and log processing, and for high-speed caches and scratch files.

These instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, which offloads many of the traditional virtualization functions to dedicated hardware, that enable the delivery of high availability, and highly-secure cloud instances. These instances offer up to 25 Gbps of network bandwidth, and up to 19 Gbps of bandwidth to the Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS). The C6gd instances also offer up to 3.8 TB of NVMe-based SSD storage.

AWS Graviton2-based instances are supported by many Linux operating systems and several popular services for security, monitoring and management, containers, and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) from AWS as well as partners. To learn more about AWS services and partner solutions for Graviton2-based instances visit AWS Graviton and AWS Graviton Ready program.

With this regional expansion, Amazon EC2 C6gd is now available across AWS US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (San Francisco), South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), and Europe (Stockholm) Regions. These instances are available in 8 sizes, with 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 48, and 64 vCPUs in addition to the bare metal option. These instances are purchasable On-Demand, as Reserved instances, as Spot instances, or as part of Savings Plans.
