According to the latest news released by Amazon’s cloud computing platform, AWS, C5a instances equipped with the second-generation AMD EPYC processor are currently available in multiple regions.
AWS C5a instances are optimized versions of computing optimization instances and are mainly used for tasks such as batch processing, distributed computing, and data conversion.
Amazon claims that these instances provide more powerful performance after upgrading the AMD EPYC 2nd generation Rome processors with new Zen2 cores, and the price is reduced by 10% compared with other processor instances of the same performance.

C5a instances support many AWS resources such as AWS Batch, Amazon EMR, Elastic Container Service, EKS, and many other services.
In addition, Amazon also said that the C5ad instance equipped with NVMe high-speed disks and the bare metal versions C5an.metal and C5and.metal instances will be launched later.
