In this video, Steve Jones, Director of Solutions Architecture at AWS gives a brief overview of EC2 High Memory instances and demonstrates how easy it is to launch an instance and manage it through the AWS Management Console. EC2 High Memory instances offer 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 TB of memory in an instance. These instances are purpose-built to run large in-memory databases, including production deployments of the SAP HANA in-memory database, in the cloud. EC2 High Memory instances allow you to run large in-memory databases and business applications that rely on these databases in the same, shared Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), reducing the management overhead associated with complex networking and ensuring predictable performance.
