AWS announces the general availability of Amazon EC2 M7a instances. M7a instances, powered by 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors (code-named Genoa) with a maximum frequency of 3.7 GHz,  deliver up to 50% higher performance compared to M6a instances.

M7a instances are SAP-certified and offer new processor capabilities such as AVX3-512, VNNI, and bfloat16. They feature Double Data Rate 5 (DDR5) memory to enable high-speed access to data in memory, and 2.25x more memory throughput compared to M6a instances, making these instances ideal for even latency sensitive workloads. M7a instances offer 12 sizes from medium to 48xlarge, including a bare-metal size. These instances are built on the AWS Nitro System and ideal for applications that benefit from high performance and high throughput such as financial applications, application servers, simulation modeling, gaming, mid-size data stores, application development environments, and caching fleets.

M7a instances are generally available today in the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). M7a instances are available through On-Demand, Reserved, Spot Instances, and Savings Plans. To get started, visit th AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and AWS SDKs.
