Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Hpc7g instances are available in Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Ireland), and the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Regions. Amazon EC2 Hpc7g instances are powered by AWS Graviton processors, which are custom Arm-based processors designed by AWS.

EC2 Hpc7g instances deliver up to 60% better performance over comparable previous-generation instances for compute-intensive high performance computing (HPC) workloads such as weather and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). You can scale your HPC clusters on Hpc7g instances to run compute-intensive workloads, such as CFD, weather forecasting, and molecular dynamics. Using Hpc7g instances, you can carry out complex calculations across HPC clusters using up to tens of thousands of cores with high performance and lower costs.

Hpc7g instances are available in 4, 8, and 16 vCPU sizes in the US East (N. Virginia), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Ireland), and the AWS GovCloud (US-West) AWS Regions. To optimize Hpc7g instances networking for tightly coupled workloads, you can access these instances in a single Availability Zone within a Region.
