EC2 推出 18TB 與 24TB 的機器...

AWS 又把機器給生出來啦:「EC2 High Memory Update – New 18 TB and 24 TB Instances」。

一樣是限制要買三年 RI 才能用,不過價錢頁面上好像還在更新,在「Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts Pricing」只看到了之前就公佈的 12TB 價錢,還沒看到 18TB 與 24TB 的部份...

然後以前會跟同事說,資料小於這台機器記憶體大小的不能叫 big data (當時是 12TB),現在升級到 24TB 啦...

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.

而且看起來這個階段像是一次只給買三年?

Amazon EC2 要推出 x1e.32xlarge,4TB RAM 的機器

剛剛 Amazon EC2 公佈的消息,要再推出記憶體大怪物機器 x1e.32xlarge:「EC2 In-Memory Processing Update: Instances with 4 to 16 TB of Memory + Scale-Out SAP HANA to 34 TB」。

Later this year we plan to make the x1e.32xlarge instances available in several AWS regions, in both On-Demand and Reserved Instance form. These instances will offer 4 TB of DDR4 memory (twice as much as the x1.32xlarge), 128 vCPUs (four 2.3 GHz Intel® Xeon® E7 8880 v3 processors), high memory bandwidth, and large L3 caches.

雖然都是拿 SAP 來舉例,但這也是當系統碰到瓶頸時搶時間的方法 (也就是當 happy problem 發生時的 workaround)。

不知道這種機器實際買起來多少錢 XDDD
