AMD has announced that it has expanded its EPYC processor-based offerings with the availability of the new Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances, which are purpose built for high performance computing (HPC) workloads in the clouds.
The Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances deliver up to 65% better performance compared to similar Amazon EC2 instances. Hpc6a will help customers run their most compute-intensive HPC workloads like, genomics, computational fluid dynamics, weather forecasting, financial risk modeling, and the like.
“Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances, powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors, allow organizations the flexibility to run HPC workloads requiring an abundance of compute power, fast memory and storage, and high levels of inter-instance communication without the upfront cost of building and maintaining HPC infrastructure on-premises,” said David Brown, vice president, Amazon EC2, AWS. “We’re excited to continue our collaboration with AMD and add another crucial AMD EPYC instance to the Amazon EC2 portfolio.”
The instances powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors are available today in the US, with availability in other regions coming soon.
