Power Virtual Servers by Amazon

Amazon now offers a server that is more influential than the general purpose server. It thrives to work and the only way to stay ahead of the competitors is to offer their users a wider variety of options for cloud-service.

The M4 instance is Amazon’s current cutting-edge generation of EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud). Choices can be made from 5 sizes and each of them comes with up to 40 simulated CPUs and 173BG of memory, as said by Amazon. These instances are available in Northern California, North Virginia, and Oregon in the U.S.; Ireland, Singapore, Tokyo, Germany, as well as Sydney.

M4 instances are based upon Intel Xeon E5-2676 v3 Haswell processors which run at a frequency of about 2.4GHz and can deliver speeds that are as high as 3.0GHz with Turbo Boost! Regarding costs, US $0.126 per hour is for top size and $0.126 per hour is for the smallest size. This includes 8.6GB of memory and has around 2 CPUs. However, storage isn’t said to be included in the price tag and integration with the Elastic Book Store assures 450Mbps to 4Gbps of dedicated throughput that still depends on the network throughout as well as the size of the instance. The Amazon instances that are with the EBS (Elastic Book Store) are optimized by default and come with no need for added charge offerings. In M4, Leveraging Enhanced Networking can deliver the customers up to four times the packet rate of instances than without it.

With respect to compatibility, M4 instances have proved to be compatible among a wide range of applications that would include, relational and in-memory databases, catching fleets, batch processing, game servers, and business applications like Microsoft SharePoint and SAP.

Another integral part of the cloud computing platform is the Amazon EC2. With its help, developers are allowed to use Amazon’s computing environment with thorough control over computing tools to build applications that are really less prone to failure! With respect to its features, the EC2 offers virtual computing environments that are usually known as instances. EC2 has especially been designed to make online cloud computing news easier and more accessible for developers.

Being the biggest public cloud market, AWS has proven to be of prime importance towards a number of online developers.

Just recently, Amazon has also announced a 2nd generation Dense Storage (DS2) instance. It is used to command groups that are running data warehouse service. Storage is similar to that on the previously but when it comes to compute power and memory, Amazon has doubled them! Users can now easily take advantages of better throughput. DS2 instances are planned in a way so that they let renowned enterprises configure great performance data and expensive warehouses by use of excellent CPUs, great amounts of SSD storage and RAM. The company has now been expecting previous DS1 customers to rapidly adapt to the DS2 family. Through a snapshot of DS1 cluster, users can now switch between the two generations easily!
