Today I was able to use an EC2 instance with 12 terabytes (12 tebibytes to be exact) of memory, almost 4 billion times as much!
The new Amazon EC2 High Memory Instances let you take advantage of other AWS services including Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), Amazon CloudWatch, and AWS Config.
SAP HANA in MinutesThe EC2 High Memory instances are certified by SAP for OLTP and OLAP workloads such as S/4HANA, Suite on HANA, BW/4HANA, BW on HANA, and Datamart (see the SAP HANA Hardware Directory for more information).

In the WorksWe’re not stopping at 12 TiB, and are planning to launch instances with 18 TiB and 24 TiB of memory in 2019.
