Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M6gd instances are available in South America (Sao Paolo) and Canada (Central) regions. These instances are powered by AWS Graviton2 processors and 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. These instances offer up to 25 Gbps of network bandwidth, up to 19 Gbps of bandwidth to the Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), and offer up to 3.8 TB of NVMe-based SSD storage.
