EPYC based of­fer­ings pro­vide bestin-class per­for­mance for Or­a­cle cloud in­fras­truc­ture

Chip de­signer AMD has un­veiled the first AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor­based in­stance on Or­a­cle Cloud In­fras­truc­ture.

With this an­nounce­ment, Or­a­cle be­comes the largest pub­lic cloud provider to have a bare metal ver­sion on AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors.

Ac­cord­ing to the AMD, the

AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor-based E se­ries will lead with the bare metal, stan­dard E2, avail­able im­me­di­ately as the first in­stance type within the Se­ries.

“With the launch of the AMD in­stance, Or­a­cle has once again demon­strated that we are fo­cused on get­ting the best value and per­for­mance to our cus­tomers,” said Clay Magouyrk, se­nior vice pres­i­dent, soft­ware de­vel­op­ment, Or­a­cle Cloud In­fras­truc­ture. “At greater than 269 GB/sec, the

AMD EPYC plat­form3, of­fers the high­est mem­ory band­width of any pub­lic cloud in­stance. Com­bined with in­creased per­for­mance, th­ese cost ad­van­tages help cus­tomers max­imise their IT dol­lars as they make the move to the cloud.”

In ad­di­tion to the bare metal of­fer­ing, the re­lease also fea­tures the one, two, four and eight core VM Shapes. The new of­fer­ing takes ad­van­tage of the in­dus­try lead­ing core count, mem­ory band­width, I/O ca­pa­bil­ity, as well as ad­vanced se­cu­rity fea­tures that come with the AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor.

For­rest Nor­rod, se­nior vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager, Data Cen­tre and Em­bed­ded So­lu­tions Busi­ness Group, AMD, said: “We are de­lighted that Or­a­cle is adding AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors to its cloud of­fer­ings. The EPYC pro­ces­sor pro­vides more cores, more mem­ory band­width, and out­stand­ing sta­bil­ity. That trans­lates into lead­er­ship TCO for cloud de­ploy­ments. It is a per­fect fit for Or­a­cle cus­tomers run­ning their busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions in the cloud.”

Nor­rod says AMD is de­lighted that Or­a­cle is adding EPYC pro­ces­sors to its cloud of­fer­ings.
