About 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors on IBM Cloud Virtual Servers for VPC

IBM Cloud Virtual Servers for VPC offers fast-provisioning compute capacity with the highest network speeds and most secure, software defined networking resources available on the IBM Cloud. This developer-friendly infrastructure, now with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, is designed to drive modern HPC workloads faster and easier with pre-set instance profiles, rapid deployment, and the latest in security with private network controls in an agile, public cloud environment.

Choose a pre-set, NUMA-aligned virtual server profile, and define your workload performance type.

  • Balanced profiles: Ideal for mix of performance and scalability inside more common workloads with a ratio of 1 vCPU for every 5 GiB of memory. Provision with and without instance storage.
  • Memory profiles: Ideal for memory intensive operations, such as lage caching, intense database applications, or in-memory analytics with a ratio of 1 vCPU for every 10 GiB of memory. Provision with and without instance storage.

Build applications and help secure your workloads with Intel security essentials for your most performance-hungry operations.

  • Intel Crypto Acceleration: Designed to reduce penality of implementing pervasive data encryoption, improve throughput, and speed up intensive workloads, including SSL web server, 5G, and infrastructure and VPN/firewalls.
  • Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX): Designed for accelerated training and interference, reduced latency, and increased I/O throughput when running one or a handful of AI tasks.
