AWS — David Brown

Pushing the Price Performance for Cloud Workloads with AWS Silicon Innovation

AWS is constantly innovating on behalf of its customers. With more than 400 instances, Amazon EC2 has the broadest and deepest portfolio of instances in the cloud to run virtually every workload. This portfolio includes instances that are powered by Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, as well as AWS-designed custom chips. To further increase performance, drive down cost, and accelerate innovation, AWS has invested in its own custom silicon. When it comes to silicon innovation, AWS has a long and proven history including the Nitro System, Graviton processors, and Inferentia chips for machine learning. In this session, Pat Moorhead and Dave Brown will discuss the drivers for AWS silicon innovation and kickoff a new initiative that customers can use to adopt Graviton2-based instances.
