AWS biggest instance

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.
