AWS is looking to push up its leadership position in business cloud computing a notch with the new EC2 high memory instances for in-memory databases like SAP HANA.
The new EC2 high memory instances offer a choice of a whopping 6, 9, and 12 terabytes of memory. AWS has said that it is now planning instances with 18 TB and 24 TB for 2019.
