Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 200 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster.
AWS Graviton2 processors based on Arm Neoverse 64-bit cores enable the best price performance for workloads in Amazon EC2. AWS Gravtion2 powered EC2 instances provide up to 40% better price performance over comparable fifth generation x86-based instances for a wide variety of workloads including application servers, micro-services, HPC, EDA, gaming, open-source databases, and in-memory caches. The Graviton2 instances support several popular Linux distributions, applications and services from AWS and several ISVs providing an extensive software ecosystem support.
Amazon EC2 instances powered by AWS Graviton2 include general purpose M6g and M6gd, general purpose burstable T4g, compute-optimized C6g, C6gd, and C6gn, and memory-optimized R6g, R6gd, and X2gd instances. The T4g burstable general purpose instances are ideal for running a broad spectrum of general-purpose workloads including open source software projects wanting to build, test and deploy natively on Arm64. AWS is offering free trial of t4g.micro instances for up to 750 hours per month until December 31st, 2021.
Developers can also take the Graviton Challenge to move their workloads from x86-based to Graviton2-based instances by following a step-by-step plan. After taking the Graviton Challenge, developers can register in the contest for a chance to win prizes, including trip to re:Invent 2021.
