Amazon EC2 R6g, R6gd, and M6gd instances are now available in additional regions
Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) R6g instances are available in AWS Region Asia Pacific (Osaka). R6gd instances are available in AWS Regions Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul) and Europe (Stockholm). M6gd instances are available in AWS Regions Asia Pacific (Osaka) and Africa (Cape Town). These instances are powered by AWS Graviton2 processors, and they are built on AWS Nitro System. The Nitro System is a collection of AWS designed hardware and software innovations that enables the delivery of efficient, flexible, and secure cloud services with isolated multi-tenancy, private networking, and fast local storage. R6g instances are built for running memory-intensive workloads such as open-source databases, in-memory caches, and real time big data analytics. R6gd instances provide local SSD storage and are ideal for memory-intensive workloads that need access to high-speed, low latency storage. M6gd offer a balance of compute, memory, networking, and local SSD resources for a broad set of workloads. They are built for applications such as application servers, microservices, gaming servers, mid-size data stores, and caching fleets that also need access to high-speed, low latency storage.
