Key benefits

Cut the queues

With Google Cloud, each team has access to their own scalable, tailor-made cluster. This helps them solve problems faster, reduce queue times for large-batch workloads, and relieve compute resource limitations.

Pay only for what you need

Google Cloud offers access to custom machine configurations. You can choose the precise amount of memory and CPU your application requires and not pay for anything more; you’re billed on a per-second basis for resources, with available committed use discounts and sustained use discounts. Plus, get up to 80% cost savings with Preemptible VMs.

Innovate with high-performance, on-demand hardware and software

Accelerate insights with the power of the Google Cloud compute, networking, and storage infrastructure. Build your own supercomputer using the latest Intel processors, NVIDIA GPUs, and Cloud TPUs with high-throughput, low-latency object and file storage.

Manage containerized workloads with Batch

Batch is a cloud-native solution for running batch workloads at scale on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). Batch frees your applications from the limitations of fixed-sized compute clusters by dynamically allocating resources to meet your application’s needs.

Industry use cases

Industries such as financial services, earth and life sciences, manufacturing, and media and entertainment run their most demanding HPC workloads on Google Cloud.

Use case
Financial analysis

Run quantitative research, portfolio optimization, and risk modeling on Google Cloud—capable of running clusters with a few hundred (or thousand) cores in minutes.

Use case
Life sciences

Process petabytes of genomic, imaging, clinical, and insurance data in seconds with Google Cloud and big data tools.

Use case
Media and entertainment

Render large workloads, livestream videos to a global audience, and launch applications with the latest NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, even at peak times.
