Amazon makes its latest high-compute instances generally availableBlair Hanley Frank / VentureBeat - 2 years ago
  • Amazon Web Services announced today that its latest high-performance cloud virtual machines are generally available for customers.
  • For example, the new instances will be well-suited to applications like video encoding, running multiplayer going systems, and serving advertisements.
  • Customers will be able to choose from instances with 2, 4, 8, 16, 36, or 72 virtual CPUs, which provides greater scale-up capabilities than the C4 line, which topped out at 36 vCPUs per instance.
  • These instances could help AWS capture more workloads that are well-suited to the public cloud.
