North America

  • US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and US West (N. California).

Z1d instance types offer a combination of high compute performance and high memory which makes them ideally suited for relational database workloads with high per-core licensing costs. Z1d instances use the Nitro system, a rich collection of building blocks that enables high performance, high availability, and high security while also reducing virtualization overhead.
