Google Cloud Chooses 3rd Gen AMD EPYC Processors to Power New Compute Focused Instance

SANTA CLARA, Calif. , Feb. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ짯ced that AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors will power the new C2D vir짯tu짯al machi짯ne offe짯ring from Goog짯le Cloud, brin짯ging cus짯to짯mers strong per짯for짯mance and com짯pu짯te power for high-per짯for짯mance (HPC) memo짯ry-bound workloads in are짯as like elec짯tro짯nic design auto짯ma짯ti짯on (EDA) and com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal flu짯id dyna짯mics (CFD). This announce짯ment con짯ti짯nues the momen짯tum for AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, mar짯king the third fami짯ly of ins짯tances powered by 3rd Gen EPYC pro짯ces짯sors at Goog짯le Cloud, joi짯ning the T2D and N2D instances.


With the help of AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors and its high core den짯si짯ty, the C2D VMs will pro짯vi짯de the lar짯gest VM sizes within com짯pu짯te opti짯mi짯zed fami짯ly at Goog짯le Cloud. As well, becau짯se of the EPYC processor셲 per짯for짯mance for com짯pu짯te focu짯sed workloads, Goog짯le Cloud show짯ca짯sed the C2D VMs can pro짯vi짯de up to 30 per짯cent bet짯ter per짯for짯mance for tar짯ge짯ted workloads com짯pared to pre짯vious gene짯ra짯ti짯on EPYC based VMs at a com짯pa짯ra짯ble size1.


The use of AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors for HPC and com짯pu짯te focu짯sed workloads con짯ti짯nues to expand as more cloud ser짯vice pro짯vi짯ders, like Goog짯le Cloud, are using EPYC to address their cus짯to짯mers most deman짯ding and inten짯se workloads. This goes on top of the exis짯ting capa짯bi짯li짯ties of EPYC for HPC workloads, inclu짯ding powe짯ring 73 super짯com짯pu짯ters on the latest Top500 list and hol짯ding 70 HPC world records2.


AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors con짯ti짯nue to show짯ca짯se their capa짯bi짯li짯ties for HPC and com짯pu짯te focu짯sed workloads, whe짯ther run짯ning drug simu짯la짯ti짯ons for the latest vac짯ci짯nes, explo짯ring the cos짯mos, or hel짯ping design cri짯ti짯cal hard짯ware and elec짯tro짯nics for the future of indus짯try, said Lynn Comp, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent, Cloud Busi짯ness, AMD. 쏷he Goog짯le Cloud C2D ins짯tances with AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors will enable Goog짯le Cloud cus짯to짯mers to run some of their most com짯plex and inten짯se workloads with ease, hel짯ping them design their pro짯ducts or sol짯ve com짯plex pro짯blems, faster.

Goog짯le Cloud cus짯to짯mers want ins짯tances that sup짯port com짯plex, per짯for짯mance-sen짯si짯ti짯ve workloads, such as high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting. VMs powered by AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors enable the per짯for짯mance and fea짯tures that are nee짯ded for the짯se cus짯to짯mers, said Nirav Meh짯ta, direc짯tor of pro짯duct manage짯ment, Goog짯le Cloud. 쏷his is now our third vir짯tu짯al machi짯ne fami짯ly powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, and we are exci짯ted to con짯ti짯nue to grow our EPYC portfolio.

C2D is gene짯ral짯ly available today and will expand to addi짯tio짯nal regi짯ons in the coming months. Cur짯rent loca짯ti짯ons are US-cen짯tral1 (Iowa), Asia-sou짯the짯as짯t1 (Sin짯ga짯po짯re), US-eas짯t1 (South Caro짯li짯na), US-eas짯t4 (North Vir짯gi짯nia), Asia-eas짯t1 (Tai짯wan), and Euro짯pe-wes짯t4 (Net짯her짯lands).
