f3, FPGA-accelerated compute optimized instance family

Features

  • Uses Xilinx 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGAs.

  • Compute:

    • Offers a CPU-to-memory ratio of 1:4.

    • Uses 2.5 GHz Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8163 (Skylake) processors.

  • Storage:

    • Is an instance family in which all instances are I/O optimized.

    • Supports standard SSDs and ultra disks.

  • Network:

    Provides high network performance based on large computing capacity.

  • Supported scenarios:

    • Deep learning inference

    • Genomics research

    • Database acceleration

    • Image transcoding such as conversion of JPEG images to WebP images

    • Real-time video processing such as H.265 video compression
