Update 3/13/2024: Added additional Region availability

Last week, we announced that Mistral AI models are coming to Amazon Bedrock. In that post, we elaborated on a few reasons why Mistral AI models may be a good fit for you. Mistral AI offers a balance of cost and performance, fast inference speed, transparency and trust, and is accessible to a wide range of users.

Today, we’re excited to announce the availability of two high-performing Mistral AI models, Mistral 7B and Mixtral 8x7B, on Amazon Bedrock. Mistral AI is the 7th foundation model provider offering cutting-edge models in Amazon Bedrock, joining other leading AI companies like AI21 Labs, Anthropic, Cohere, Meta, Stability AI, and Amazon. This integration provides you the flexibility to choose optimal high-performing foundation models in Amazon Bedrock.

Mistral 7B is the first foundation model from Mistral AI, supporting English text generation tasks with natural coding capabilities. It is optimized for low latency with a low memory requirement and high throughput for its size. Mixtral 8x7B is a popular, high-quality, sparse Mixture-of-Experts (MoE) model, that is ideal for text summarization, question and answering, text classification, text completion, and code generation.

Here’s a quick look at Mistral AI models on Amazon Bedrock:
