Amazon Launches Cluster Compute EC2 Instances For High Performance Applications.  This helps with the availability of Cluster Compute Instances for Amazon EC2, which is a new instance type specifically designed for high-performance computing (HPC) applications and other demanding applications.

The cloud feature that I love the most is that clients can group “Cluster Compute Instances” into clusters which allows applications on servers to get the low-latency network performance required for tightly coupled, node-to-node communication.  There have been several times where I have been unable to do this on other cloud platforms due to cloud server limitations.

This launch represents Amazon’s continued push to make EC2 stronger and more scalable.  Besides offering customers more features, Amazon may also be prepping for a new competitor. Rumor has it that Google may be launching an EC2 competitor.
