Gcore and Ampere join forces on high-performance cloud solutions
Thu 28 Sep 2023
European public cloud provider Gcore has announced a collaboration with Ampere, developer of cloud-native processors.
The collaboration brings together Gcore’s cloud infrastructure with Ampere’s innovative 128-core processors based on the ARM architecture and optimised for cloud workloads.
Gcore virtual machines (VMs) now support configurations based on the Ampere Altra cloud-native processor family for data centre deployments from the hyperscale cloud to the edge cloud.
“Together, we can provide our customers with powerful and efficient virtual machines that will strengthen their efforts to deliver and maintain modern cloud applications,” said Vsevolod Vayner, Product Director for Edge and AI Cloud at Gcore.
Gcore VMs are hosted on HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 servers, which are equipped with Ampere Altra processors. This is the server designed specifically for providers and digital-first enterprises that need to deploy cloud applications.
Ampere processors are based on the ARM architecture, which offers several advantages for cloud-native environments, including power efficiency, performance per watt, and support for heterogeneous workloads.
“Our collaboration with Gcore is an important step in providing cloud-native solutions that meet the needs of today’s most demanding cloud workloads,” said Jeff Wittich, Chief Product Officer at Ampere.
