Gcore, a European supplier of CDN and edge computing, public cloud, security, and artificial intelligence (AI), has announced a partnership with Ampere, a leader in the creation of processors that are cloud-native. Through this partnership, Ampere’s cutting-edge 128-core processors – which are built on the ARM architecture and suited for cloud workloads – and Gcore’s experience with cloud infrastructure are combined.
The Ampere Altra processor family, a cloud-native processor that would offer predictable high performance, linear scalability, and power efficiency for data center deployments from the hyperscale cloud to the edge cloud, is now supported by configurations for Gcore virtual machines (VMs). Due to the large core counts of Ampere’s processors, tasks may be processed efficiently in parallel.
When comparing the performance of Ampere, AMD, and Intel CPUs on a single node executing standard workloads, Ampere performs 2.5 times quicker on average than the AMD EPYC 3rd Gen and the Intel Xeon 3rd Gen, according to Gcore.
Ampere Altra processor-equipped HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 servers support Gcore virtual machines. This server is designed especially for cloud application deployment providers and digital-first businesses.
The Ampere Altra product family’s scalability would make it possible for data centers and cloud providers to manage many activities at once and effectively expand their infrastructure in response to demand. Optimized for the cloud, Ampere Altra helps to increase cores-per-rack density and overall performance. The ARM architecture, on which Ampere processors are built, has a number of benefits for cloud-native settings, including support for diverse workloads, power efficiency, and performance per watt.
Vsevolod Vayner, Gcore Product Director, Edge & AI Cloud, said, “We are thrilled to work with Ampere to deliver their cutting-edge processors to our cloud. By working together, we can provide our clients strong, effective virtual machines that will support their efforts in delivering and managing contemporary cloud applications.”
“Our collaboration with Gcore is an important step in providing cloud-native solutions that meet the needs of today’s most demanding cloud workloads,” said Jeff Wittich, Chief Product Officer at Ampere. “Through collaboration, we can reach a wider audience and provide the performance advantages of our Ampere Altra processor family to more clients.”
According to the companies, an important advancement in cloud infrastructure has been made with the partnership between Gcore and Ampere. By offering clients cutting-edge cloud-native apps built on scale-out and elastic cloud architectures, it would offer a reliable and effective solution.
