EC2 的大記憶體機器又推新規格了...

這次 Amazon EC2 的機器又推出一些新規格了:「Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances now available for on-demand usage」。

然後每次推這些機器的時候都會提到 SAP HANA,都沒有其他的例子可以說... 話說業界就只剩下這套系統是完全都沒在考慮分散式架構嗎 XDDD (完全沒用過)

SAP customers continue to leverage AWS as their platform of choice and innovation. Some are in the early stages of their SAP cloud journeys and are focused on executing their migration. Others have hardened their SAP systems on AWS and are innovating around their core business processes with advanced AWS services.

另外他有提到 24TB 的機器,在 Amazon EC2 Instance Types 這邊可以翻到 u-24tb1.metal

In 2018, we released High Memory Instances in response, which now offer up to 24TB of memory in a single instance.

不過你會發現在 Amazon EC2 On-Demand Pricing 這邊翻不到 24TB 的價錢,先前在「EC2 推出 18TB 與 24TB 的機器...」這邊有過這些機器買三年 RI 才能用,所以這次推出來 12TB 的機器算是隨時租用的機器裡面記憶體最多的了...

u-12tb1.112xlargeus-east-1 的價錢是 USD$109.2/hour,想要玩的人可以測試看看,至少應該玩的動 XD

AWS 提供 6TB/9TB/12TB RAM 的機器...

AWS 推出了超大記憶體的機器,代碼 u-{6,9,12}tb1.metal,分別對應 6TB/9TB/12TB 的 RAM:「Now Available – Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances with 6, 9, and 12 TB of Memory, Perfect for SAP HANA」。

這記憶體比我桌機的硬碟還大... 然後還打算出更大台的機器 XDDD:

We’re not stopping at 12 TiB, and are planning to launch instances with 18 TiB and 24 TiB of memory in 2019.

不過目前從 web console 上沒看到可以選擇,似乎沒有開放零租 (i.e. 以分計費,或是以小時計費),在價錢頁「Amazon EC2 Pricing」這邊沒看到,在 Reserved Instance (RI) 的頁面「Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances Pricing」這邊也沒看到。

從文章裡的描述知道目前在 us-east-1 & ap-northeast-1 有提供,但從後台情況以及文章語氣推測,似乎要另外開 support ticket 才能選用:

These instances are now available in the US East (N. Virginia) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Regions as Dedicated Hosts with a 3-year term, and will be available soon in the US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. If you are ready to get started, contact your AWS account team or use the Contact Us page to make a request.
