New AWS Instance Types Available On Elastigroup

Today we’re happy to announce that Elastigroup now supports all three of AWS’s newhigh-performance instances types! Here’s an overview of the new instance types, which deliver memory-optimized and high per-core performance.

R5 Instances
The memory-optimized R5 instances use custom Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8000 Series (Skylake-SP) processors running at up to 3.1 GHz, powered by sustained all-core Turbo Boost. They are perfect for distributed in-memory caches, in-memory analytics, and big data analytics, and are available in six sizes:

Instance Name vCPUs Memory EBS-Optimized Bandwidth Network Bandwidth
r5.large 2 16 GiB Up to 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5.xlarge 4 32 GiB Up to 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5.2xlarge 8 64 GiB Up to 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5.4xlarge 16 128 GiB 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5.12xlarge 48 384 GiB 7.0 Gbps 10 Gbps
r5.24xlarge 96 768 GiB 14.0 Gbps 25 Gbps

You can launch your R5 instances today in the US East (N. Virginia)US East (Ohio)US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) Regions.

R5d Instances
The R5d instances share their specs with the R5 instances, with the addition of up to 3.6 TB of local NVMe storage.

Instance Name vCPUs Memory Local Storage EBS-Optimized Bandwidth Network Bandwidth
r5d.large 2 16 GiB 1 x 75 GB NVMe SSD Up to 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5d.xlarge 4 32 GiB 1 x 150 GB NVMe SSD Up to 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5d.2xlarge 8 64 GiB 1 x 300 GB NVMe SSD Up to 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5d.4xlarge 16 128 GiB 2 x 300 GB NVMe SSD 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
r5d.12xlarge 48 384 GiB 2 x 900 GB NVMe SSD 7.0 Gbps 10 Gbps
r5d.24xlarge 96 768 GiB 4 x 900 GB NVMe SSD 14.0 Gbps 25 Gbps

The R5d instances are available to you in the US East (N. Virginia)US East (Ohio), and US West (Oregon) Regions.

z1d Instances
The high-frequency z1d instances use custom Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors running at up to 4.0 GHz, powered by sustained all-core Turbo Boost, perfect for Electronic Design Automation (EDA), financial simulation and relational database workloads that can benefit from the high per-core performance, as well as workloads with per-core licensing.

Instance Name vCPUs Memory Local Storage EBS-Optimized Bandwidth Network Bandwidth
z1d.large 2 16 GiB 1 x 75 GB NVMe SSD Up to 2.333 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
z1d.xlarge 4 32 GiB 1 x 150 GB NVMe SSD Up to 2.333 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
z1d.2xlarge 8 64 GiB 1 x 300 GB NVMe SSD 2.333 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
z1d.3xlarge 12 96 GiB 1 x 450 GB NVMe SSD 3.5 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
z1d.6xlarge 24 192 GiB 1 x 900 GB NVMe SSD 7.0 Gbps 10 Gbps
z1d.12xlarge 48 384 GiB 2 x 900 GB NVMe SSD 14.0 Gbps 25 Gbps

The z1d instances are available to you today in the US East (N. Virginia)US West (Oregon)US West (N. California)EU (Ireland)Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions.
