General availability: Compute-intensive A10 and A11 instances for virtual machines

05 March 2015

A10 and A11 instances for virtual machines are similar to A8 and A9 instances, but they feature faster processors, more virtual cores for greater compute power, and larger amounts of memory. A10 instances have 8 virtual cores and 56 GB of RAM, and A11 instances have 16 virtual cores and 112 GB of RAM. With these instances, customers can run compute-intensive applications such as video encoding, risk modeling, and simulation. These instances offer more options for customers who don’t require the InfiniBand networking capability that comes with A8 and A9 instances.
