AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) now supports Amazon EC2 C6i and R6i instance types. These instances are powered by 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz, offering up to 15% better compute price performance over comparable Generation5 instances for a wide variety of workloads, and always-on memory encryption using Intel Total Memory Encryption (TME).

Designed for a wide variety of workloads, C6i and R6i instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a combinationof dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor, which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances. C6i instances are an ideal fit for compute-intensive workloads and R6i instances are an ideal fit for memory intensive workloads. To meet customer demands for increased scalability, these instances provide new 32xlarge size with 128 vCPUs, 33% more than the largest Generation5 instance. They also give customers up to 50 Gbps of networking speed and 40 Gbps of bandwidth to the Amazon Elastic Block Store, twice that of Generation5 instances.
