AWS biggest instance9 June 2016 · Filed in Infrastructure
Wow, today I noticed that AWS now provides a truly massive instance. By request at the moment.
|vCPU||ECU||Memory (GiB)||Instance Storage (GB)||Linux/UNIX Usage|
|x1.32xlarge||128||349||1952||2 x 1920 SSD||$16.006 per Hour|
Above is the EU-WEST-1 (Ireland) pricing for an on demand instance. That equates to $384 per day.
I'm not sure we've seen a workload that could justify this monster. When configuring a cluster we would usually use smaller and many instances to match the load more closely.
In a monolithic environment this could be used as a single SAP HANA node or similar?
Of course we will update you when we find one in production.Previous Post: What does DevOps or the Ops team do? Next Post: Happy birthday WWW Tags:
