Starting today, Amazon EC2 C6in instances, powered by 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with an all-core turbo frequency of up to 3.5 GHz, are available in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. C6in are the first x86-based Amazon EC2 compute optimized instances to offer up to 200 Gbps network bandwidth, and are ideal to scale the performance of applications such as network virtual appliances (firewalls, virtual routers, load balancers), Telco 5G User Plane Function (UPF), data analytics, high performance computing (HPC), and CPU based AI/ML workloads.

Amazon EC2 C6in instances are built on the Amazon Nitro System, which offloads many of the traditional virtualization functions to dedicated hardware, and enables the delivery of highly- available, highly-secure cloud instances. C6in instances are available in 10 different sizes with up to 128 vCPUs and 256 GiB of memory, including bare metal size. C6in instances deliver up to 80 Gbps of Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) bandwidth and up to 350K input/output operations per second (IOPS), the highest Amazon EBS performance across EC2 instances. C6in instances offer Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) networking support on 32xlarge and metal sizes. EFA support enables lower latency and improved cluster performance for workloads deployed on tightly coupled clusters, such as distributed computing and HPC.

With this regional expansion, Amazon EC2 C6in instances are now available across the following Amazon Web Services regions: US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland, Stockholm, Frankfurt, London, Milan, Zurich, Paris), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Tokyo), Middle East (Bahrain), Asia Pacific (Jakarta, Mumbai, Sydney), Africa (Cape Town), South America (Sao Paulo), Canada (Central), Middle East (Dubai), and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. These instances are purchasable On-Demand, as Reserved instances, as Spot instances, or as part of Savings Plans.
