Intel and Google Cloud

Google Cloud was the 1st Cloud Service provider to offer Intel Xeon Scalable processors. We have partnered with Google to create joint solutions around HPC, Big Compute, Analytics and AI that benefit from our technology. At Google Cloud you have access to the Intel Xeon Scalable optimized images for TensorFlow and can use Intel Performance Libraries to enhance performance of Intel processors. Our joint solutions make AI simple, accessible and fast. Explore our landing page to learn more about our joint solutions.

Google Cloud and Intel AI Partner With NASA-FDL On Space Challenges

For 2019 Google Cloud and Intel AI partnered with NASA’s Frontier Development Labs for their fourth annual summer research accelerator. Intel mentors worked with google cloud mentors and early career Ph.D’s from around the world, applying the latest machine learning and AI technology for smarter, faster problem solving on some of space travel’s most pressing issues like lunar resources, space weather and earth observations.

How to start on GCP

For machine type instances, you can

  • SELECT the CPU platform (including the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor codenamed “Skylake”)
  • INDICATE preferred region/zone according to your location
  • CHOOSE any number of vCPUs (up to 96) and any amount of memory (up to 1.4 TB of RAM)
  • SELECT CPU through selector tool (Slylake can be specified through the CPU selector tool)

Intel Xeon Scalable processor (Skylake) is now available in 16 out of 17 GCP regions
