“The world is demanding higher computing power to fuel the technology that impacts all parts of our daily lives, and AMD EPYC processors can enable the high-performance compute to meet that demand,” said Lynn Comp, Corporate Vice President, Cloud Business, AMD.

Optimized Cloud Computing, Cloud Compute, and Bare Metal are now available as separate product lines on Vultr’s compute platform. When a server is installed, Vultr’s control panel has all of these categories available.

Users will now be able to choose their favorite CPU and Storage Technology platform when establishing an instance in the Vultr management panel. Vultr’s virtual machines are powered by AMD processors. These new VMs are now Vultr’s default, preferred solution for most users, thanks to their “great per-core performance” and maximum frequency of 3.675GHz.

Dedicated vCPUs power all Vultr’s Optimized Cloud Compute instances. Unlike standard Cloud Compute instances, which use shared vCPUs, Optimized Cloud Compute instances use vCPUs devoted to a task, so users won’t have to worry about noisy neighbors.

“AMD has made tremendous strides in tech innovation over the past few years. It has elevated the design, architecture, and performance of its CPUs, which has enabled us to implement even more affordable and performance-optimized alternatives to solutions like AWS EC2,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Constant, the parent company of Vultr. “This launch represents a big step in helping businesses and developers transition from the Big Tech clouds to our easy-to-use, high performance platform.”

NVMe SSD Storage

Users may deploy VMs with the correct mix of resources for their workloads using Optimized Cloud Compute, which comes in General Purpose, CPU Optimized, Memory Optimized, and Storage Optimized server types. All Optimized Cloud Compute instances are equipped with NVMe SSD storage.

“The world is demanding higher computing power to fuel the technology that impacts all parts of our daily lives, and AMD EPYC processors can enable the high-performance compute to meet that demand,” said Lynn Comp, Corporate Vice President, Cloud Business, AMD. “We are excited to collaborate with Vultr to deliver end customers an efficient, scalable and compute-intensive solution leveraging the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors on the Vultr Optimized Cloud Compute lineup of virtual machines.”
