Production-Optimized Instances

Reliable, high-performance instances with dedicated vCPU for the most demanding workloads and mission-critical applications (x86).

Production grade

Leverage the state-of-the-art AMD EPYC™ 7003 series processors for high-performance and production-grade computing. Enhanced with AMD’s Secure Encrypted Virtualization, virtual machines are isolated from the hypervisor by default.

High performance

Achieve maximum performance for your most demanding workloads with dedicated vCPUs instances. Ensuring that your applications are always available when you need them.


Boot Instances faster and benefit from redundant Block Storage for highly available, triple-replicated data. Scale up to 10TB storage capacity without downtime to adapt according to your needs.

    Optimization for demanding and specific needs

    FR-PAR-2 is our second innovative and sustainable availability zone (AZ) in Paris. The eco-AZ FR-PAR-2 is our carbon-neutral & environmentally efficient region. FR-PAR-2 is 100% powered by renewable (hydraulic) energy and also has an energy footprint 30-40% lower than that of a traditional data center, thanks to the fact that it does not require air conditioning.

    A production environment is a system where software applications are executed and made available to end-users or customers. This environment is usually optimized for reliability, scalability, and security to ensure that the application runs smoothly and efficiently without interruptions or downtime. It is the final stage in the software development lifecycle where the application is deployed and maintained for live use.
