42% better price-performance
Designed for scale-out workloads
T2D VMs, the first instance type in the Tau VM family, are built on the latest 3rd Gen AMD EPYCTM processors. T2D VMs offer a great combination of performance and price for your scale-out workloads including web servers, containerized microservices, media transcoding, and large-scale Java applications. T2D VMs will come in predefined VM shapes, with up to 60 vCPUs per VM, and 4 GB of memory per vCPU, and offer up to 32 Gbps networking.
Full x86 compatibility
The x86 compatibility provided by T2D VMs gives you market-leading performance improvements and cost savings, without having to port your applications to a new processor architecture.
T2D will be the lowest cost solution for scale-out workloads, with 42% higher price-performance compared to general-purpose VMs of any of the leading public cloud vendors.
Get more from your containers
Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) supports Tau VMs, helping you optimize price-performance for your containerized workloads. You can add T2D nodes to your GKE clusters by specifying the T2D machine type in your GKE node pools.
Choosing the right virtual machine
Tau VMs are priced to support significant TCO and price-performance improvements for your cloud applications. A 32 vCPU VM with 128 GB RAM will be priced at $1.3520 per hour for on-demand usage in us-central1.
