Starting today, Amazon EC2 High Memory instances with 24TiB (u-24tb1.112xlarge) of memory are now available in Asia Pacific (Seoul) region and high Memory instances with 18TiB (u-18tb1.112xlarge) of memory are now available in US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) regions. These instances give customers greater flexibility for instance usage and procurement - customers can start using them with On Demand, Reserved Instance, and Savings Plan purchase options. With u-24tb1 and u-18tb1, customers have a choice of 24TiB and 18TiB of memory, respectively - both offering 448 vCPUs, 100Gbps network and 38Gbps EBS bandwidth. 

These instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a collection of AWS-designed hardware and lightweight Nitro hypervisor which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances. This frees up additional memory for your workloads which boosts performance and lowers the $/GiB costs.

Amazon EC2 High Memory instances are certified by SAP for running Business Suite on HANA, SAP S/4HANA, Data Mart Solutions on HANA, Business Warehouse on HANA, and SAP BW/4HANA in production environments. For details, see the Certified and Supported SAP HANA Hardware Directory.
