High Performance Computing on AWS

AWS high performance computing services

Fast networking in the cloud

Scale HPC applications to thousands of CPUs and GPUs with Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA). 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.

Use cases
