The New Graphics Acceleration Instances provides the most CPU and Memory within a Cloud-based Computer System for 3D Rendering and Virtual Reality Applications

Amazon Web Services has recently announced a new piece of technology to their cloud-based computer system with G3 instances.

For those still learning about computer graphics, and how they are created; Amazon Web Services is providing an online service that will help producers store and maintain large files on servers to help them access, edit and manage virtual reality programs, as well as 3D graphics.

Amazon Web Services and Business Wire reported:

“AWS was the first to offer cloud instances customized for graphics-intensive applications. In 2010, we launched the CG1 instance type to provide a cost-effective, high-performance instance for graphics-heavy applications, and today, G3, our third generation GPU-powered instance, serves the most demanding graphics workloads such as 3D rendering and data visualization.” – Matt Garman, Vice President, Amazon EC2. 

G3 instances are available in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), AWS GovCloud (US), and EU (Ireland), and will expand to additional regions in the coming months.

Each server farm that Amazon operates has strengths and weaknesses. Similar to how YouTube is currently only providing YouTube TV in certain areas, AWS also has stronger and more equipped areas for storing and accessing data online with cloud-based programs.
