AMD And AWS Reveal Next-Gen Performance Leap In Cloud Computing At Tech Premiere

Zinger Key Points
  • AMD and AWS have solidified their partnership with the introduction of over 100 AMD EPIC based Amazon EC2 instances.
  • AMD itself will leverage these advanced EC2 instances for its own data analytics workloads

At the "AMD Data Center and AI Technology Premiere" event on Tuesday, Lisa Su, the CEO of Advanced Micro Devices Inc AMD, and Dave Brown, Vice President at Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), a subsidiary of Inc AMZN, underscored their companies' collaborative journey towards empowering innovative technology solutions.

The partnership has allowed for significant progress in cloud technology. Brown noted, "We're constantly innovating on behalf of our customers...and together we have introduced over 100 AMD EPYC-based Amazon EC2 instances for general purpose, compute-intensive, and memory-intensive workloads."

According to Brown, the virtual servers have successfully helped customers from various industries optimize their operations, leading to significant cost savings. These successes include:

  • TrueCar, a digital automotive marketplace, optimized its AWS infrastructure by up to 25% through the adoption of AMD instances and AWS recommendation tools.
  • Sprinklr, a customer experience management platform, adopted the first-generation AMD-based EC2 instances for general workloads. "When they moved to Amazon EC2 M6g, the next generation, Sprinkler saw 22% faster performance and 24% cost savings over the previous generation."
  • DTN, a company handling global weather data models, effectively doubled its high-resolution global weather modeling capacity after deploying Amazon EC2 HPC6 instances powered by AMD's EPYC processors.

"I love what we're doing together with customers. I think both AMD and Amazon, we've really shared this passion for enabling our customers to do more with our technology," Su said.

Looking ahead, the partnership between AMD and AWS promises more breakthroughs. Brown said, "We're building new EC2 instances enabled by the unique combination of the fourth generation AMD's EPIC processors together with the AWS Nitro System... we've unleashed the full capability of the next-gen AMD processors and delivered a significant leap in performance for our customers."

Su responded, saying, "We're so excited about what we're doing together with you, with Genoa, with Nitro, with all of your resources at AWS."

Brown unveiled the Amazon EC2 M7a, a general-purpose instance powered by the fourth-generation AMD EPYC processor. "M7a has been designed to provide the best x86 performance and price performance... M7 instances offer a major leap in performance with up to 50% more compute performance than M6, the previous generation."

"He said 50% more compute performance on M7. I mean, it's just amazing gen-on-gen performance," Su emphasized.
