Utilizing the TIER_1 setting on the network-performance-configs flag mechanically upgrades your occasion with elevated community bandwidth.

To make use of these new options, just remember to’re utilizing the beta channel, and run gcloud components update to get the most recent SDK. See Benchmarking higher bandwidth VM instances for extra info on organising VMs and operating community throughput checks.

Differentiated networking

We try to make it straightforward for our clients to benefit from our differentiated options. Some distinctive elements of high-throughput VM networking  are:

  1. It’s an add-on function. Since we’ve optimized networking efficiency on current N2 and C2 VMs, you don’t must reconfigure your workloads for any new occasion varieties to benefit from high-throughput networking. You additionally keep all compatibility with scripts and automation instruments.

  2. No extra stock constraints. These networking capabilities don’t impose extra stock constraints in your N2 or C2 deployments. In truth, you possibly can improve VMs to make use of elevated bandwidth in any zone the place you possibly can create an N2 or C2 occasion.

  3. Greatest-in-class throughput. Google Cloud provides the best throughput performance of any cloud supplier, and we’re doubling down on that efficiency with much more bandwidth choices at this time.

Leveraging Google Cloud’s distinctive Andromeda structure

Our new A2 instances with NVIDIA A100 GPUs help 100 Gbps networking at this time. Constructing on our work for A2s, we’re now in a position to provide increased bandwidth configurations on current C2 and N2 VM households by optimizing Google Cloud’s distinctive Andromeda network, which we’ve upgraded to help {hardware} offloads comparable to zero-copy, TSO, and encryption, all with out introducing downtime on your VM. The result’s up-to 100 Gbps of encrypted site visitors between VMs.

Get began at this time

Excessive bandwidth configurations for N2 and C2 VMs can be found in Preview at this time (in regions and zones that support these machine varieties) for all clients utilizing the beta gCloud SDK or our Cloud APIs.

For extra particulars, take a look at our documentation for community bandwidth in addition to our how-to guide for benchmarking your VM’s community efficiency.

Please observe that this function is in public preview and can be billed without charge all through this era. The pricing in our documentation is normal availability pricing and can go into impact when the general public preview ends.
