Amazon ElastiCache now supports additional sizes of the Graviton3-based network-optimized C7gn node type. ElastiCache C7gn nodes feature the new 5th generation AWS Nitro Cards and enable you to achieve the highest network bandwidth across ElastiCache node families for network-intensive workloads. With this launch, ElastiCache C7gn nodes are available in 7 different node sizes (large to 16xlarge) for increased scalability. ElastiCache C7gn nodes offer up to 200 Gbps network bandwidth.

AWS Graviton3 processors are the latest generation of custom-designed AWS Graviton processors built on the AWS Nitro System. The Nitro System is a collection of AWS-designed hardware and software innovations that enables the delivery of efficient and flexible cloud services with enhanced security, isolated multi-tenancy, private networking, and fast local storage. You can take advantage of the enhanced networking capabilities of C7gn nodes to scale performance and throughput while optimizing the cost of running network-intensive workloads.

To get started, you can create a new cluster through the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or AWS Software Development Kit (SDK). C7gn nodes are available for Amazon ElastiCache in the following AWS regions: US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). You can purchase these nodes as On-Demand or as Reserved nodes with a 1- or 3- year commitment period.
