AWS is proud to announce that the new x1e.32xlarge EC2 instances are available now in four different regions. These instances sport 4 TB of DD4 memory and therefore can run SAP HANA and other kinds of memory-intensive and resident applications.
- 4TB DD4 memory
- quad socket Intel Xeon E7 8880 v3 Haswell processors running at 2.3GHz (128 vCPUs),
- large L3 caches
- large memory bandwidth,
- support for C-state and P-state management.
- 25 Gbps of network bandwidth when launched within an EC2 placement group, with added support for up to 8 Elastic Network Interfaces(ENIs) per instance.
As mentioned earlier, the x1e.32xlrge EC2 instances are supported by SAP certification for deployments of SAF business suites on HANA, SAF Business Warehouse on HANA, and next-gen SAP S/4 HANA ERP and SAP BW/4HANA data warehouse solution. You may also upgrade to this instance if you are already running SAP HANA workloads on other instances.
However, please note that regional flexibility does not apply to all x1 and x1e instance types.
Finally, the x1e.32xlarge is currently available in US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Regions. You may launch them On-Demand or as Reserved instances using AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS SDKs, and AWS Marketplace.
