Today the majority of the rented server capacities are the virtual. But we shall realize that behind all this there is a real hardware. It and terabytes of a disk space, thousands of processors and cooling systems. The Google company – one of the largest, if not the largest supplier of cloud services in a pattern. The other day she reported about the beginning of implementation of new cloud servers of Compute Engine.
The basis of new systems was formed by the Intel processors Xeon Scalable with Skylake microarchitecture. In a new series of Intel increased quantity of kernels and I made the memory controller six-channel. It allowed to increase the number of the virtual processors by Compute Engine for 50%.
Now each system can provide up to 96 such processors. The total amount of a random access memory grew to 624 Gbytes. Beta testing of the platform already began. Only cloud servers are available only in the USA, Western Europe and East Asia so far. Novelties are provided in three options: standard, high-CPU and high-memory.
The quantity of the virtual kernels is identical and equal in all cases 96, memory sizes are 360, 86,4 and 624 Gbytes respectively. The configuration at the request of the customer is possible, but limits are described above.
The option from 624 Gbytes of memory is certified for use of SAP HANA, scalable configurations with 16 nodes and with a total amount of memory up to 9,75 Tbyte are possible. Now the company works on creation of a cloud server in which the maximum volume of a random access memory will reach 4 Tbyte on system.
Everything goes to acceleration and improving of quality of cloudy storage. Naturally, the most technological company in a pattern stands at the origins of such changes!
