Google Cloud virtual machines will use the new AMD EPYC processors

AMD has announced that it has expanded its collaboration with Google Cloud to enable the cloud computing large to energy its N2D Digital Machines (VMs) applying the EPYC 7003 Sequence processors.

Previous 12 months, Google announced that the N2D Compute Engine machine type will be based on the 2nd generation AMD EPYC processors. The offering has now been prolonged to help the hottest third generation EPYC processors.

In accordance to Google Cloud, N2D VMs on the new processors provide about 30% far better price-performance on typical, throughout a range of workloads, when as opposed to the N2D cases based on the previous generation processors.

“Through our collaboration with AMD and the capabilities of the hottest AMD EPYC processors in the Compute Engine N2D family, clients can expertise this next-generation technology with considerably far better performance and price-performance for their common-goal workloads,” stated Nirav Mehta, director of product or service management, Google Cloud. 

A lot more bounce for the ounce

In a joint site publish, Subra Chandramouli and  Robert Beatty, each product or service supervisors at Google Cloud, share that N2D VMs based on the third Generation AMD EPYC processors offer clients a broad established of VM shapes and personalized machine types, 

N2D supports VMs with up to 224 vCPUs and up to 896 GB of memory, for workloads that demand a greater amount of threads, making it possible for clients to select personalized measurements based on their demands. 

“Customers applying N2D VMs powered by third generation AMD EPYC processors get accessibility to the hottest options in the AMD EPYC processor family like up to 256 MB of L3 cache and ‘Zen 3’ cores, which present greater recommendations per clock (IPC) as opposed to ‘Zen 2’,” shares the duo, adding that all clients will need to do to use the new processors is to choose them as the CPU platform for their N2D VMs.
