Vultr Introduces Extensive New Portfolio of AMD Processor-Powered Virtual Machines

Vultr, an independent provider of cloud infrastructure, is launching a new Optimized Cloud Compute product line, along with a refreshed Cloud Compute lineup of virtual machines.

Through this launch, Vultr is introducing a wide range of shapes and sizes of High Performance VMs, all with 100% NVMe SSD storage, and including instances powered by 3rd Generation AMD EPYC processors.

Vultr’s compute platform now features three discrete product lines: Optimized Cloud Compute, Cloud Compute, and Bare Metal. These categories can all be found within Vultr’s control panel when a server is deployed.

When provisioning an instance in the Vultr control panel, users will now have the ability to select their preferred CPU & Storage Technology platform.

This is the first time Vultr has offered AMD-powered virtual machines. Given these AMD CPUs’ exceptional per core performance and maximum frequency of 3.675GHz, these new VMs are now Vultr’s default, recommended option for most users.

Optimized Cloud Compute instances are all powered by dedicated vCPUs. Unlike Vultr’s typical Cloud Compute instances that run on shared vCPUs, Optimized Cloud Compute instances run on vCPUs that are dedicated to your workload, so you never have to worry about noisy neighbors, according to the vendor.

Optimized Cloud Compute is available in General Purpose, CPU Optimized, Memory Optimized, and Storage Optimized server types, so that users can deploy VMs with the right balance of resources for their workloads. All Optimized Cloud Compute instances are built with 100% NVMe SSD storage.

Vultr is available in 23 locations across five continents:

  • North America: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, L.A., Mexico City, Miami, New Jersey, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Toronto
  • South America: São Paulo
  • Europe: Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Paris, Stockholm, Warsaw
  • Asia: Seoul, Singapore, Tokyo
  • Australia: Melbourne, Sydney
