g5ne, general purpose instance family with enhanced network performance

Features
  • Significantly improves the network throughput and packet forwarding rate per instance. A single instance can deliver a packet forwarding rate of up to 10,000 Kpps.
  • Offers a CPU-to-memory ratio of 1:4.
  • Uses 2.5 GHz Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8163 (Skylake) or 8269CY (Cascade Lake) processors for consistent computing performance.
  • Is an instance family in which all instances are I/O optimized.
  • Supports standard SSDs and ultra disks.
  • Provides high network performance based on large computing capacity.
    Note We recommend that you select instance types of the g5ne instance family to deploy Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) applications.
  • Suits the following scenarios:
    • DPDK applications
    • Network intensive scenarios such as NFV or SD-WAN, mobile Internet, on-screen video comments, and telecom data forwarding
    • Small and medium-sized database systems, caches, and search clusters
    • Enterprise-level applications of various types and sizes
    • Big data analysis and machine learning
