Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces the general availability of general purpose Amazon EC2 M6a instances. M6a instances are powered by 3rd generation AMD EPYC (code named Milan) processors with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.6 GHz, deliver up to 35% better price performance compared to M5a instances, and 10% lower cost than comparable x86-based EC2 instances. Designed to provide a balance of compute, memory, storage, and network resources, M6a instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor, which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances. These instances are SAP-Certified and are ideal for workloads such as web and application servers, back-end servers supporting enterprise applications (e.g. Microsoft Exchange Server and SharePoint Server, SAP Business Suite, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, and PostgreSQL databases), web servers, micro-services, multi-player gaming servers, caching fleets, as well as for application development environments.
