The MySQL team is excited to announce that MySQL Database Service now supports the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute E3 shapes. These shapes are built on the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC 7742 processor, with a base clock frequency of 2.25 GHz and max boost of up to 3.4 GHz, and have better networking and more RAM. MySQL Database Service customers can start to use them today and enjoy higher performance and flexibility for diverse MySQL workloads.
The MySQL Database Service E3 offers up to 64 OCPUs (128 virtual cores) and 1 TB of RAM. This is the highest core count and memory for a single fully managed MySQL instance on any public cloud.
The new E3 shapes for MySQL Database Service are available in eight commercial regions: Brazil East (Sao Paulo), Canada Southeast (Toronto), Germany Central (Frankfurt), India West (Mumbai), Japan East (Tokyo), UK South (London), US East (Ashburn), and US West (Phoenix). More regions are coming soon.
