Announcing new Amazon EC2 M6gd, C6gd, and R6gd instances powered by AWS Graviton2 processors

Starting today, new general purpose Amazon EC2 M6gd, compute-optimized Amazon EC2 C6gd, and memory-optimized Amazon EC2 R6gd instances with local NVMe-based SSD block-level storage are now available. These instances are powered by AWS Graviton2 processors and deliver up to 40% better price performance and 50% more NVMe storage GB/vCPU over comparable x86-based instances for a wide variety of workloads, including application servers, micro-services, high-performance computing, CPU-based machine learning inference, electronic design automation, gaming, open-source databases, and in-memory caches. The local SSD storage provided on these instances is ideal for applications that need access to high-speed, low latency storage, as well as for temporary storage of data such as batch and log processing, and for high-speed caches and scratch files.
