Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) for PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MariaDB now supports M6i and R6i in US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon, N. California), Europe (Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm, Milan, Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Sydney), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), Africa (Cape Town), and Middle East (Bahrain).
M6i and R6i instances are powered by 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, providing up to 16% better price/performance than equivalent M5 and R5 instances and 27% better price/performance than equivalent M4 and R4 instances. M6i instances provide a new instance size of 32xlarge with 128 vCPUs and 512 GiB of memory, 33% more memory than the largest M5 instances. Similarly, for workloads that benefit from more memory, you can use R6i.32xlarge that has 128 vCPUs and 1024 GiB of memory, 33% more memory than the largest R5 instances. These instances give you up to 50 Gbps of networking speed and 40 Gbps of bandwidth to the Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), twice that of M5 and R5 instances.
