Starting today, Amazon EC2 C6gd instances powered by AWS Graviton2 processors are available in Europe (Zurich) region. These instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, 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.

C6gd instances are ideal for compute-intensive workloads such as high performance computing (HPC), batch processing, and CPU-based machine learning inference. The local SSD storage provided on these instances will benefit applications that need access to high-speed, low latency storage, as well as for temporary storage of data such as batch and log processing, and for high-speed caches and scratch files.

With this regional expansion, Amazon EC2 C6gd is now available across AWS US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), South America (São Paulo), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Stockholm), Europe (Paris), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), and Europe (Zurich) Regions. These instances are purchasable On-Demand, as Reserved instances, as Spot instances, or as part of Savings Plans.
