AWS increases Epic database sizing options for customers

AWS has achieved yet another significant milestone in its performance journey, now offering 65 million GRefs/s for Epic’s Chronicles Operational Database (ODB) on AWS. This remarkable achievement, made possible through collaboration with Epic, sets a new standard for cloud sizing using native cloud services and enables 96% of all Epic clients to run on AWS.

At Keystone Technologies, as an Advanced Tier Partner, we’re excited to deliver integrated healthcare services alongside AWS. Partnering with AWS ensures our healthcare clients receive a 360-degree ecosystem approach along with the highest level of performance, security, and elastic computing available. This latest advancement in database sizing options underscores AWS’s commitment to continuously improving and innovating to meet the evolving needs of its customers.

The increased database sizing options are made possible through the utilization of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) R7an.48xlarge instances combined with Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) io2 Block Express volumes, all within a horizontally scaled (ECP) ODB architecture. This technology not only enhances performance but also ensures resiliency and reliability with at least 3 Availability Zones in every AWS Region.

The R7an instances, powered by 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors and built on the AWS Nitro System, offer improved compute and networking performance. Additionally, the io2 Block Express volumes provide faster and more consistent performance for applications with sub-millisecond latency and larger capacity, IOPS, and throughput.
