US-based chip maker AMD on Wednesday announced the availability of its first “AMD EPYC” processor-based offering on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

The offering is up to 66 per cent less on average per core than general purpose instances offered by the competition and is the most cost-effective instance available on any Public Cloud.

“With the launch of the AMD instance, Oracle has once again demonstrated that we are focused on getting the best value and performance to our customers,” said Clay Magouyrk, Senior Vice President, Software Development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

“At greater than 269GB per second, the ‘AMD EPYC’ platform offers the highest memory bandwidth of any public cloud instance,” he added.

With 64 cores per server and up to 33 per cent more memory channels than comparable x86 instances, the “Standard E2” offering is ideally suited for data analytics workloads that demand higher cores and memory bandwidth.

 Oracle and Microsoft have expanded their Cloud partnership to now help customers in Canada run their mission-critical workloads across Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

“Our new interconnect location means enterprises can now build workloads that seamlessly interoperate between Microsoft and Oracle cloud regions in Canada. This interconnect builds on an existing partnership announced in June last year,” Vinay Kumar, Vice President, Product Management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, said in a statement.

The partnership has received a huge amount of interest, as 80 per cent of enterprises use a combination of Microsoft and Oracle software to run their businesses.

These workloads include financial planning, inventory, sales applications — and their underlying databases.

“The expansion will give more customers direct, fast and highly reliable network connectivity between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud, while providing first-class customer service and support that enterprises have come to expect from the two companies,” said Kumar.

The global demand for running applications and databases in multi-cloud environments continues to accelerate.

“With the new interconnect, our Canadian customers can now take advantage of a nearly seamless cloud integration between the world’s largest enterprise cloud providers, Microsoft and Oracle,” said Clay Magouyrk, senior vice president of engineering, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
