Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M7gd instances with up to 3.8 TB of local NVMe-based SSD block-level storage are available in South America (Sao Paulo) region.

These Graviton3-based instances with DDR5 memory are built on the AWS Nitro System and are a great fit for applications that need access to high-speed, low latency local storage, including those that need temporary storage of data for scratch space, temporary files, and caches. They have up to 45% improved real-time NVMe storage performance than comparable Graviton2-based instances. Graviton3-based instances also use up to 60% less energy for the same performance than comparable EC2 instances, enabling you to reduce your carbon footprint in the cloud.

M7gd instances are now available in the following AWS regions: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon, N. California), Europe (Spain, Stockholm, Ireland, Frankfurt, Paris), Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney), and South America (Sao Paulo).
