Starting today, the new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) C7gn instances, powered by the latest generation AWS Graviton processors, are available in preview. Featuring the new AWS Nitro Cards, Amazon EC2 C7gn instances deliver the highest network bandwidth, and the best packet-processing performance for Graviton-based Amazon EC2 instances. C7gn instances offer up to 200 Gbps network bandwidth and up to 50% higher packet-processing performance compared to previous generation C6gn instances. Amazon EC2 C7gn instances are built on the AWS Nitro System. The Nitro System is a collection of AWS designed hardware and software innovations that enables the delivery of efficient, flexible, and secure cloud services with isolated multi-tenancy, private networking, and fast local storage. Take advantage of the enhanced networking capabilities to scale performance and throughput while optimizing the cost of running network-intensive workloads. Workload examples include network virtual appliances, data analytics, and CPU based artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) inference.
C7gn instances support Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) networking, which enables lower latency and improved cluster performance for workloads deployed on tightly coupled clusters.
