EC2 X2gd Instances – Graviton2 Power for Memory-Intensive Workloads

September 10, 2021 / Eternal Team

AWS launched the first Graviton-powered EC2 instances in late 2018.

The Graviton2 a highly cost-effective workhorse processor.

Today, we can choose between General Purpose (M6g and M6gd), Compute-Optimized (C6g, C6gn, and C6gd), Memory-Optimized (R6g and R6gd), and Burstable (T4g) instances, all powered by fast, efficient Graviton2 processors.
IT companies use these instances to run application servers, gaming servers, HPC workloads, video encoding, ad servers, and more.

X2gd Instances

The new X2gd instances have twice as much memory per vCPU as the memory-optimized R6g instances and are designed for your memory-hunger workloads.

This includes in-

  • memory databases,
  • open-source relational databases,
  • Electronic Design Automation design & verification,
  • real-time analytics,
  • caching services, and
  • containers.

X2gd instances are available in eight sizes, and also in bare metal form.

the new X2gd instances offer 55% better price/performance than existing X1 instances.

The X2gd instances also offer the lowest price per GiB of memory of any current EC2 instance.

The fast SSD-based local NVMe storage, X2gd instances support Elastic Network Adapter (ENA), and can deliver up to 25 Gbps of network bandwidth between instances when launched within a Placement Group.

X2gd instances are available now in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland) Regions, with more regions to come.
