Google Announces AMD-powered Tau Virtual Machines for the Cloud: Everything You Need to Know

Google has promised eight different configurations of virtual machines

Google Cloud: The tech giant Google has announced a new family of virtual machines called Tau, for which it would use chips provided by AMD. The search engine giant said the system would contain third-generation AMD EPYC processors. The system would offer x86 compatibility, Google added, and would deliver a 42% price-performance increase over standard VMs or virtual machines. The company has said that with this system, Tau VMs would be a significant advance over current virtual machines.

Google has promised eight different configurations of the virtual machines, with a virtual machine having up to 60 vCPUs and a vCPU with a memory of 4 GB. Meanwhile, the network bandwidth can go up to 32 Gbps.

According to Google, these virtual machines would help customers deal with workloads that require more data. The company also touts these virtual machines as offered at relatively lower costs, with costs that vary based on configurations. It should be noted that the system would arrive in the third quarter of this year and the company has opened pre-registration for customers.

The move is expected to impact the virtual machine industry, but it will also affect the chip industry, where things are already getting very competitive.

Intel has long been an industry leader due to its extensive ties with PC and laptop manufacturers. However, Apple took the processor by surprise last year when it announced its move away from Intel for its Mac in favor of its internal M1 chips, just as Apple’s PCs saw growth of a whopping 49% last year. Amid this, AMD has also been looking to expand its customer base, and Google’s use of the chipmaker’s processor in its Tau VMs is likely to boost AMD’s market share.
