High-performance processors enable C3 instances to support applications that require higher compute power to function. The AWS C3 instance offers a considerably high level of performance at a considerably low cost. They even support enhanced networking, unlike previous generations (C1 and CC2 instance types).

AWS C3 instances are suited for high-performance front-end fleets, Web servers and applications that require batch processing and distributed analytics. They are also appropriate for high-performance science and engineering applications.
