AMD, Google Cloud, Cloud

Google Cloud is set to launch the first instance in its new family of Tau virtual machines (VMs), built on the third generation of AMD’s EPYC processors, released earlier this year. 

AMD EPYC processors already power numerous instances at Google Cloud that support workloads including compute optimised, general purpose, high-performance and confidential computing. 

However, the new T2D instance, based on the latest generation of EPYC processors, is expected to offer 56 per cent higher absolute performance and more than 40 per cent higher price performance for scale-out workloads.

The chipmaker launched its new AMD EPYC 7003 Series CPUs in March, claiming at the time that the new processors would offer high performance computing (HPC), cloud and enterprise customers higher performance than other processors, with up to 19 per cent more instructions per clock. 

Launch partners included Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cisco, Dell Technologies, Google Cloud, HPE, Lenovo, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Supermicro, Tencent Cloud and others. Upon launch, Cisco revealed it had bulked up its rack server offering with new models built with AMD’s EPYC 7003 processors. 

Now, it’s Google Cloud’s turn to tout its new AMD-powered offering, claiming that the new processors allow its customers to seamlessly integrate workloads with their existing x86 ecosystems, enabling applications and frameworks to work with the T2D instances.  

“At Google Cloud, our customers’ compute needs are evolving,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. “By collaborating with AMD, Google Cloud customers can now leverage amazing performance for scale-out applications, with great price-performance, all without compromising x86 compatibility.” 

The new instances are offered in eight different predefined VM shapes, with up to 60 vCPUs per VM and up to 4GB of memory per vCPU, making this technology ideal for scale-out workloads, AMD noted. 

AMD president and CEO Lisa Su said the company designed the new EPYC processors to meet the growing demand from cloud and enterprise customers for high-performance, cost-effective solutions with optimal total cost of ownership.  

“We work closely with Google Cloud and are proud they selected AMD to exclusively power the new Tau VM T2D instance which provides customers with powerful new options to run their most demanding scale-out workloads,” she said.
