Starting today, Amazon EC2 C6gn instances are available in AWS Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region.

Based on the AWS Nitro System, C6gn instances are powered by Arm-based AWS Graviton2 processors and feature up to 100Gbps network bandwidth, delivering up to 40% better price-performance versus comparable current generation x86-based network optimized instances for applications requiring high network bandwidth such as high performance computing (HPC), network virtual appliances, data lakes and data analytics. These instances can utilize the Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) for workloads like HPC and video processing that can take advantage of lower network latency with Message Passing Interface (MPI) for at-scale clusters. Workloads on these instances will continue to take advantage of the security, scalability and reliability of Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

To get started with C6gn instances, visit the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and AWS SDKs. To learn more, visit the AWS Graviton page, C6g page, or the Getting Started Github page.
