Power your applications with AWS silicon
Seamlessly run workloads using hybrid cloud
Power a broad spectrum of workloads including application servers, open-source databases, in-memory caches, microservices, and gaming servers. AWS silicon also underpins hybrid cloud services such as AWS Outposts, AWS Local Zones, and AWS Wavelength. Our hybrid offerings deliver a consistent AWS experience in the cloud, on premises, and at the edge.
Train and deploy ML applications
Amazon EC2 delivers AWS-designed ML chips, Trainium and Inferentia, to train and deploy ML applications with high performance, lower costs, and easier migration from GPU-based instances.
Build and run macOS workloads
Amazon EC2 Mac instances, powered by the AWS Nitro System, let you provision and access macOS environments within minutes, using the high-security, high-performance AWS Global Infrastructure.
Securely process sensitive data
With AWS Nitro Enclaves, you can create isolated compute environments to further protect and securely process highly sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information and healthcare, financial, and intellectual property data within Nitro-based EC2 instances.
