Now Elastic Fabric Adapter Is Commonly Accessible

Elastic Fabric Adapter EFA is a network interface for Amazon EC2 instances which allows users to execute High Performance Computing (HPC) applications needing high levels of inter-instance communications, like computational fluid dynamics, weather modeling, and reservoir simulation, at scale on AWS. It utilizes a custom-built operating system bypass method to improve the performance of inter-instance communications, which is important to scaling HPC applications. With EFA, HPC applications with the help of famous HPC technologies like Message Passing Interface (MPI) can scale to thousands of CPU cores. EFA gives assistance to industry-standard libfabric APIs, so applications which utilize a supported MPI library can be relocated to AWS with small or no change. Now, Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), a low-latency network adapter for Amazon EC2 Instances, is commonly accessible for production use. EFA was introduced as a preview in November 2018. This new feature EFA is accessible as an optional EC2 networking feature which you can enable on C5n.18xl and P3dn.24xl instances without any extra xharges. Now EFA is accessible in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and AWS GovCloud (US). Assistance for extra instances and regions will be offered in the forth coming months. To know further on EFA for your HPC workloads, click here.
