Amazon Web Services announces next generation EC2 instances
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced M4 instances for its EC2 cloud, adding another selection of compute instances to an already well-established list.
The M4 instances will deliver processing power with custom 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2676 Haswell processors, and aim to provide lower network latency and jitter – the variation between packets arriving – through Enhanced Networking. M4 also offers dedicated bandwidth to Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS).
