AWS Announces Availability of Amazon EC2 X2gd Instances Powered by Proprietary Graviton2 Processors



Amazon Web Services (AWS) yesterday announced the general availability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) X2gd instances. They are characterized as next-generation memory-optimized instances based on AWS proprietary Graviton2 processors. AWS Graviton2 processors are built on the Arm architecture.

Recall that an instance is a virtual machine instance running in the cloud that provides infrastructure as a service (IaaS), which implements such a service model in cloud computing, when a certain typical resource with specific capabilities is provided to the user.

AWS estimates that EC2 X2gd instances outperform X1 instances on x86-compatible processors up to 55% in price / performance. However, they offer more memory per virtual processor (vCPU) than other Graviton2-based instances.

This allegedly enables AWS customers to more efficiently run memory-intensive workloads such as in-memory databases, relational databases, electronic design automation (EDA), real-time analytics, and real-time caching.

AWS offers nine flavors of EC2 X2gd with vCPUs ranging from 1 to 64, memory capacities from 16 GB to 1024 GB, which also differ in storage and network bandwidth.
