Apr 19 2021Elastic Compute Service (ECS)
Targeted customers: various enterprise users. Features provided: Provide g7 general-purpose, c7 compute-optimized, and r7 memory-optimized instance families. <br> Use the third-generation SHENLONG architecture to provide predictable and consistent ultra-high performance. Utilize fast path acceleration on chips to improve storage performance, network performance, and computing stability by an order of magnitude. <br> Support the virtual Trusted Platform Module (vTPM) feature and implement trusted boot based on Trusted Cryptography Module (TCM) or TPM chips to provide ultra-high security capabilities. During a trusted boot, all modules in the boot chain from the underlying server to the ECS instance are measured and verified. <br> Support the Enclave feature and provide a virtualization-based confidential computing environment. <br><br> Compute:<br> Offer CPU-to-memory ratios of 1:2, 1:4, and 1:8.<br> Use the third-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable (Ice Lake) processors that deliver a base frequency of 2.7 GHz and an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz to provide consistent computing performance.<br> Allow Hyper-Threading to be enabled or disabled.<br><br> Storage:<br> Are instance families in which all instances are I/O optimized.<br> Support only enhanced SSDs (ESSDs).<br> Provide burstable storage I/O performance for low-specification instances.<br> Provide high storage I/O performance based on large computing capacity.<br><br> Network:<br> Support IPv6.<br> Provide ultra-high packet forwarding rates.<br> Provide burstable network performance for low-specification instances.<br> Provide high network performance based on large computing capacity.
