High Performance Computing on AWS

Accelerate innovation

Access a broad range of cloud-based services, like machine learning (ML) and analytics, plus HPC tools and infrastructure to quickly design and test new products.

Maximize operational efficiency

Gain on-demand access to compute capacity. Skip the wait and save more time to focus on solving complex problems without worrying about cost and infrastructure constraints.

Optimize performance

Find the perfect fit for your infrastructure needs and solve real-world business problems with your choice of the largest selection and capacity of HPC services, fast networking, and storage on AWS.

Fast networking in the cloud

Scale HPC applications to thousands of CPUs and GPUs with Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), powered by the AWS Nitro System. Run distributed ML applications faster with a purpose-built, low-latency, and low-jitter channels for inter-instance communications. You can enable EFA support on a growing list of Amazon EC2 instances and get the flexibility to choose the right compute configuration for your workload.

AWS high performance computing services

Amazon EC2 Hpc7g, Hpc7a, and Hpc6id are HPC-optimized instances purpose built for running HPC workloads at scale on AWS. 

Run HPC applications at scale with Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), a network for Amazon EC2 instances with high-level inter-node communications capabilities.
Easily access, manage, and monitor cloud-based research and engineering environments.
