Introducing Amazon EC2 H1 Instances, the latest generation of Storage Optimized instances for high performance big data workloads

Amazon EC2 H1 instances are the latest generation of Amazon EC2’s Storage Optimized instances, which are powered by 2.3 GHz Intel® Xeon® E5 2686 v4 processors (codenamed Broadwell), offer more vCPUs and more memory per terabyte of local magnetic storage compared to D2 instances. The largest instance size, h1.16xlarge, provides 64vCPUs and 16TB of HDD-based instance storage. H1 instances are designed for applications that need low cost storage, high disk throughput, and high sequential disk I/O access to large data sets. H1 instances are ideal for data-intensive workloads such as MapReduce-based workloads, distributed file systems such as HDFS and MapR-FS, network file systems, log or data processing applications such as Apache Kafka, and big data workload clusters.
