Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud(Amazon EC2) C6in instances are available in Europe (Frankfurt, London, Milan, Zurich). These instances are powered by 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with all-core turbo frequency of up to 3.5 GHz, and are the first x86-based Amazon EC2 instances to offer up to 200 Gbps network bandwidth.

C6in instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor, which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances for better overall performance and security. You can take advantage of the higher network bandwidth to scale the performance of applications, such as network virtual appliances (firewalls, virtual routers, load balancers), Telco 5G User Plane Function (UPF), data analytics, high performance computing (HPC), and CPU based AI/ML workloads.

C6in instances are available in 10 different sizes with up to 128 vCPUs, including bare metal size. They also deliver up to 80 Gbps of Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) bandwidth and up to 350K input/output operations per second (IOPS), the highest Amazon EBS performance across EC2 instances. C6in instances offer Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) networking support on 32xlarge and metal sizes.

C6in instances are also available in these AWS Regions: US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland, Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Tokyo, Jakarta, Mumbai, Sydney), Middle East (Bahrain), Africa (Cape Town), South America (São Paulo), Canada (Central), and AWS GovCloud (US-West, US-East) Regions.
