Amazon EC2 推出第一款 Bare Metal 的 Instance

Amazon EC2 直接租整台主機出來了:「Amazon EC2 Bare Metal Instances with Direct Access to Hardware」。

Bare Metal 怎麼翻譯比較好啊?雖然知道是拔掉虛擬化的主機... 裸奔機?

We knew that other customers also had interesting use cases for bare metal hardware and didn’t want to take the performance hit of nested virtualization. They wanted access to the physical resources for applications that take advantage of low-level hardware features such as performance counters and Intel® VT that are not always available or fully supported in virtualized environments, and also for applications intended to run directly on the hardware or licensed and supported for use in non-virtualized environments.

反正這種機器就是要壓榨整台機器的效能,所以不會拿小台機器出來給大家玩。這次推出的是 i3 系列,叫做 i3.metal

Today we are launching a public preview the i3.metal instance, the first in a series of EC2 instances that offer the best of both worlds, allowing the operating system to run directly on the underlying hardware while still providing access to all of the benefits of the cloud. The instance gives you direct access to the processor and other hardware, and has the following specifications:

Processing – Two Intel Xeon E5-2686 v4 processors running at 2.3 GHz, with a total of 36 hyperthreaded cores (72 logical processors).
Memory – 512 GiB.
Storage – 15.2 terabytes of local, SSD-based NVMe storage.
Network – 25 Gbps of ENA-based enhanced networking.

走了十年總算走到這塊了... 不過應該花了不少時間解決各種安全性的問題,像是 network isolation 以及反刷韌體的問題 XD

    單用戶直接控制 機

  2. Dennis says:

    It is possible that Amazon is using UEFI firmware / Intel ME backdoor to control the machine?

  3. Liang Guo says:

    反刷韌體应该不是个问题,只需要在客户不再使用这个机器的时候重新刷一遍就解决了。

  4. 應該就叫實體機 !?
