These C5a instances are designed to deliver the best possible price-performance value for compute-intensive workloads like batch processing, distributed analytics, data transformations, log analytics and web applications.

In the beginning, Amazon will offer these eight EC2 C5a instances, which will cost 10% less than comparable instances.

EC2 C5a
Instance
vCPUs RAM EBS-Optimised
Bandwidth
Network
Bandwidth
c5a.large 2 4 GiB Up to 3.710 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.xlarge 4 8 GiB Up to 3.710 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.2xlarge 8 16 GiB Up to 3.710 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.4xlarge 16 32 GiB Up to 3.710 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps
c5a.8xlarge 32 64 GiB 3.710 Gbps 10 Gbps
c5a.12xlarge 48 96 GiB 4.750 Gbps 12 Gbps
c5a.16xlarge 64 128 GiB 6.3 Gbps 20 Gbps
c5a.24xlarge 96 192 GiB 9.5 Gbps 20 Gbps

These instances are fully 64-bit x86 compatible, and managed by the same Nitro platform used across Amazon EC2, with similar sizes as C5 instances, and the AMIs work on either.

They will eventually add disk variants like C5ad (with fast, local NVMe instance storage) and bare metal variants like C5an.metal and C5adn.metal.
