If you have a resource-hungry app, You have dealt with the latest offer from Google Compute Engine . It can store up to 96 CPUs and another secular 624 GB of memory. Remember to ask Bill Gates who ever need more than 64K of memory. He obviously did not see it.

If you think that’s a lot, you’re not kidding and believe it or not, it’s a big boost from just last March when GCE an offer with 64 CPU cores and 416 GB Memory has announced. These figures are now picturesque.

The chips, as you might expect, are the latest Intel Xeon scalable processors (which use the codename Skylake). According to Google, these babies cry out with up to 20% faster computing power, 82% faster high-performance computer (HCP) and almost twice the memory bandwidth compared to the previous generation of the Intel Xeon line (because you can never have enough power, you can?)

If you do not need so much power (what’s wrong with you?) Or you want to mix and match depending on what you are running, you can customize your CPU and memory configurations to meet your workload requirements

The company points out that these new workloads are certified for the operation of SAP HANA workloads. This is the German software giant in-memory database product and this puppy gives you a touch of memory when you ask for it.

If 624 gigs do not meet your needs, do not be afraid. The company is working on products that deliver up to 4TB of memory. Stay tuned, but be sure your pocketbook is open. That does not come cheap. Today’s model starts at about $ 4.95 per hour.
