AmazonAMZN’s cloud division, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), has made its new purpose-built Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances – Hpc6a – generally available to strengthen its compute offerings.
Specifically, the new instances, powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors, are designed to run high-performance computing (HPC) workloads at scale in the cloud while delivering up to 65% better price/performance -to offer relationship.
Hpc6a instances are enabled with Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), which helps customers increase operational efficiencies by offering low latency, low jitter, and up to 100 Gbps EFA network bandwidth.
These instances provide a cost-effective way to scale HPC clusters on AWS to run your most compute-intensive workloads, including weather forecasting, molecular dynamics, computational chemistry, financial risk modeling, computational fluid dynamics, and computer-aided engineering.
