Today, we are announcing the general availability of Amazon EC2 M2 Pro Mac instances. These instances deliver up to 35 percent faster performance over the existing M1 Mac instances when building and testing applications for Apple platforms.
New EC2 M2 Pro Mac instances are powered by Apple M2 Pro Mac Mini computers featuring 12 core CPU, 19 core GPU, 32 GiB of memory, and 16 core Apple Neural Engine and uniquely enabled by the AWS Nitro System through high-speed Thunderbolt connections, offering these Mac mini computers as fully integrated and managed compute instances with up to 10 Gbps of Amazon VPC network bandwidth and up to 8 Gbps of Amazon EBS storage bandwidth. EC2 M2 Pro Mac instances support macOS Ventura (version 13.2 or later) as AMIs.
A Story of EC2 Mac Instances When Jeff Barr first introduced Amazon EC2 Mac Instances in 2020, customers were surprised to be able to run macOS on Amazon EC2 to build, test, package, and sign applications developed with Xcode applications for the Apple platform, including macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
