Amazon Web Services, or AWS, is a subsidiary of Amazon.com that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to individuals and companies worldwide.
Amazon Web Services provides a broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, and other services that make up the public cloud. These services are designed to help developers build more sophisticated applications in less time and at less cost. AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform provider.
AWS Graviton processors are designed by AWS to deliver the best price-performance for cloud workloads running in Amazon EC2.
AWS Graviton is a fully managed service that includes all the necessary components for DevOps teams to build and deploy their applications, from the first server all the way up to full-scale application architecture. With this new service, AWS aims to help DevOps teams automate operations tasks such as provisioning, monitoring, and updating their servers.
Some of the more recognizable AWS Graviton enterprise users include:
Exberry delivers a deep-tech trading infrastructure that offers turnkey solutions for exchanges, banks, digital securities, and digital assets marketplaces. Exberry allows close to zero time to market and flexible cost structures that are not possible in existing leading solutions. Exberry is lowering the entry point to establish an efficient market and presents a totally new reality for new and traditional players in the industry.
On AWS Graviton, Ronen Nachmias. Cou-Founder & CTO of Exberry said: “We deployed our Java-based Exberry Matching and Trading Engine running on Amazon Corretto to Amazon EC2 M6g and C6g instances powered by AWS Graviton2, resulting in 50% lower latency and 70% lower cost over comparable fifth-generation x86-based instances. It took our team six hours to make the transition and no code changes were needed. With Graviton2-based instances, we were able to achieve impressive results with a single-digit microsecond round trip latency on the AWS cloud! The improved price-performance allows Exberry to offer even better and more competitive service to our customers. We are pleased with the results and the seamless experience, and look forward to extending the use of Graviton2-based instances to other services in our platform.”
Snapchat is an American multimedia instant messaging app and service developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc. One of the principal features of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are usually only available for a short time before they become inaccessible to their recipients.
On AWS Graviton, Aaron Sheldon, Software Engineer at Snap said: “Using Graviton2-based instances, we were able to reduce the Snapchat messaging fleet size and significantly lower cost compared to C5 instances. The move to C6g instances reduced CPU utilization by roughly 10% because of better performance on Graviton2. We are planning to move additional workloads to Graviton2 in the future and have found similar performance gains on other large workloads.”
Twitter is an American microblogging and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as “tweets”. Registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read those that are publicly available.
On AWS Graviton, Nick Tornow, Head of Platform, Twitter, said: “Twitter is working on a multi-year project to leverage AWS Graviton-based EC2 instances to deliver Twitter timelines. As part of our ongoing effort to drive further efficiencies, we tested the new Graviton3-based C7g instances. Across a number of benchmarks that we’ve found to be representative of the performance of Twitter workloads, we found Graviton3-based C7g instances deliver 20-80% higher performance vs. Graviton2-based C6g instances, while also reducing tail latencies by as much as 35%. We are excited to utilize Graviton3-based instances in the future to realize significant price-performance benefits.”
