Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) R6gd instances are available in the Europe (Zurich) Region. These instances are powered by AWS Graviton2 processors and are 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, flexible, and secure cloud services with isolated multi-tenancy, private networking, and fast local storage. R6gd instances provide local SSD storage and are ideal for memory-intensive workloads such as open-source databases, in-memory caches, and real time big data analytics that need access to high-speed, low latency 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), up to 512 GiB RAM, and up to 3.8TB of NVMe SSD local instance storage.

R6gd instances are available in the AWS regions: US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (N. California, Oregon), Asia Pacific (Jakarta, Mumbai, Osaka, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm, Zurich), Canada (Central), China (Beijing, Nginxia), South America (Sao Paulo), and US GovCloud(US-West, US-East).
