Amazon EC2 C7gn metal instance is now available



Starting today, AWS Graviton-based Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) C7gn instances are available in bare metal size. Amazon EC2 C7gn instances feature the new 5th generation AWS Nitro Cards and deliver the highest network bandwidth, the best packet-processing performance, and the best price performance for network-intensive workloads. C7gn instances offer up to 200 Gbps network bandwidth and up to 3x higher packet-processing performance per vCPU versus comparable current generation x86-based network optimized instances. Take advantage of the enhanced networking capabilities to scale performance and throughput while optimizing the cost of running network-intensive workloads. Workload examples include network virtual appliances, data analytics, and CPU-based artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) inference. Bare metal instances allow EC2 customers to run applications that benefit from deep performance analysis tools, specialized workloads that require direct access to bare metal infrastructure, legacy workloads not supported in virtual environments, and licensing-restricted business critical applications. C7gn metal size comes with 64 vCPUs and 128 GiB of memory. Amazon EC2 C7gn metal instances are available in the following [AWS Regions]( US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo). They can be purchased as Savings Plans, Reserved, On-Demand, and Spot instances.
