The Hpc6a run compute-intensive HPC workloads like genomics, computational fluid dynamics, weather forecasting, financial risk modelling, EDA for semiconductor design, computer-aided engineering, and seismic imaging.
“Our processors power all levels of HPC, from exascale systems in research laboratories to flexible HPC cloud computing instances like the new Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances. AMD Epyc processors provide a powerful solution for Amazon EC2 customers that need access to impressive HPC performance and cloud scalability for their workloads,” explains AMD senior vice president and general manager server business Dan McNamara.
“Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances, powered by 3rd Gen AMD Epyc processors, allow organisations the flexibility to run HPC workloads requiring an abundance of compute power, fast memory and storage, and high levels of inter-instance communication without the upfront cost of building and maintaining HPC infrastructure on-premises,” claims Amazon EC2 AWS vice president David Brown.
The instances powered by 3rd Gen AMD Epyc processors are available today in US East (Ohio) and AWS GovCloud (US-West), with availability in additional AWS Regions planned soon. The Amazon EC2 Hpc6a instances are available here.
