AWS 推出使用 AMD CPU 的 m5a 與 r5a

Amazon EC2 推出使用了 AMD Epyc 的機種,分別為 m5a.*r5a.*:「New Lower-Cost, AMD-Powered M5a and R5a EC2 Instances」。

這個系列的重點在於價位相較於 m5.*r5.* 大約低了 10% 的費用:

The newest EC2 instances are powered by custom AMD EPYC processors running at 2.5 GHz and are priced 10% lower than comparable instances.


These instances are available now and you can start using them today in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions in On-Demand, Spot, and Reserved Instance form.

然後在「Amazon EC2 Pricing」這頁已經可以看到價錢,但大概是某些非技術性的因素,可以發現沒有列出 ECU... 不過從沒有推出 c5a.* 系列大概可以猜測效能應該打不贏 c5.* 所以沒有打算推出對應的產品線?(不過也難說,等看看有沒有人測試出來吧...)

另外文章最後提到會有 t3a.* 的計畫,如果價錢會再比現在的 t3.* 低一些的話,看起來頗值得期待的:

PS – We are also working on T3a instances; stay tuned for more info!

Amazon EC2 補產品線:M5 也有 NVMe 的 SSD local disk 可以用了

Amazon EC2 對 M5 instance 推出了帶 NVMe SSD 的版本:「EC2 Instance Update – M5 Instances with Local NVMe Storage (M5d)」。先推出歐美的區域:

M5d instances are available in On-Demand, Reserved Instance, and Spot form in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), US East (Ohio), and Canada (Central) Regions. Prices vary by Region, and are just a bit higher than for the equivalent M5 instances.

算是 M3 系列的後繼產品?對應到四年前推出的 m3.medium 是 1 vCPU、3.75GB RAM 以及 8GB SSD (不過 m3.large 就變成 2 vCPU、7.5GB RAM 與 32GB SSD,硬碟的部份多了不少)。

這樣 M5 就更全面了...

Amazon EC2 再推出兩款新機種:M5 與 H1

Amazon EC2 的新機種發表:「M5 – The Next Generation of General-Purpose EC2 Instances」、「H1 Instances – Fast, Dense Storage for Big Data Applications」。

M5M4 的後續機種 (General Purpose),所以就沒什麼特別好講的了... H1 則是與 D2 接近,而且也應該算是後繼的機種 (Dense Storage),看了看內容感覺只是個升級 (雖然給他一個新的 family type),所以也沒什麼好講...


M5 三區:

You can launch M5 instances today in the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) Regions in On-Demand and Spot form (Reserved Instances are also available), with additional Regions in the works.

H1 四區:

H1 instances are available today in the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), and EU (Ireland) Regions.

產品發表會固定會有的升級 XD
