EC2 Mac instances now available at AWS


AWS recently announced support for AWS Mac EC2 instances.

Leveraging Mac mini computers, EC2 Mac instances can run macOS workloads on AWS. App developers for Apple's line of devices such as iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Safari will now benefit by provisioning macOS environments at AWS and leveraging the cloud.

Executive Opinion

Vice President, Worldwide Product Marketing, Bob Borchers, Apple, said, "Apple’s thriving community of more than 28 million developers continues to create groundbreaking app experiences that delight customers around the world. With the launch of EC2 Mac instances, we’re thrilled to make development for Apple’s platforms accessible in new ways, and combine the performance and reliability of our world-class hardware with the scalability of AWS."

Mac EC2 instances also support up to 10 Gbps of VPC network bandwidth and 8 Gbps of EBS storage bandwidth through high-speed Thunderbolt 3 connections, notes the announcement.

AWS regions supported for EC2 Mac instances are US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions. AWS also planning to add other regions, notes the announcement.
