Introducing New Cost-Optimized E2 VMs on GCP
This E2 family of VMs on Google Compute Engine, now in beta, are feature packed with reliable and sustained performance, flexible configurations, and the best total cost of ownership compared to VMs on GCP N1 and N2 family.
Google introduces new cost-optimized E2 instances to get more competitive in business.
This E2 family of VMs on Google Compute Engine, now in beta, is feature-packed with reliable and sustained performance, flexible configurations, and the best total cost of ownership compared to VMs on GCP N1 and N2 family.
E2 VMs over N1 instances
Reduced TCO: E2 VMs providing similar performance compared to N1 instances at 31% lesser price point.
Smooth Performance: Compared to other cloud providers, E2 VMs can withstand high CPU load without artificial throttling or complicated pricing.
Flexible Configurations: 15 pre-defined tailored configurations with upto 16 vCPUs and 128 GB of memory.
Technology: These E2 VMs are configured with industry-standard x86 chips from Intel and AMD, so no need to change your code or recompile to take advantage of this price-performance.
Performance: E2 VMs are a great fit for a wide range of workloads including web servers, small-to-medium sized databases, business-critical applications and development environments. If you have workloads running well on N1 VMs, but don’t require large instance sizes, GPUs or local SSD, consider moving them to E2 providing similar results.
Migration: E2 VMs emphasise on performance and safeguard your workloads from the type of issues associated with resource-sharing with custom-built CPU scheduler and performance-aware live migration.
