Better Performance Can Reduce the Number of VM Instances You Need

If you’ve decided to host your WordPress websites on Google Cloud N-series instances, you can get better performance by selecting new N2 instances enabled by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors rather than older N1 instances.

As Figure 1 on the previous page shows, in tests comparing the WordPress performance of VM instances with 16 vCPUs Google Cloud N2 VM instances enabled by Intel Xeon Scalable processors completed 1.42x as many requests per second as an N1 instance using older processors.

Figure 2. Relative WordPress performance of the 8-vCPU N2 Standard VM instance type and the 8-vCPU N1 Standard VM instance type.

Testing showed similar wins with smaller instances. As Figure 2 above shows, a Google Cloud 8-vCPU N2 VM instance enabled by Intel Xeon Scalable processors completed 1.30x as many requests per second as an N1 instance using older processors.

Figure 3. Relative WordPress performance of the 4-vCPU N2 Standard VM instance type and the 4-vCPU N1 Standard VM instance type.

As Figure 3 above shows, a Google Cloud 4-vCPU N2 VM instance enabled by Intel Xeon Scalable processors completed 1.36x as many requests per second as an N1 instance using older processors.

Regardless of the size instances your WordPress site requires, choosing new N2 VM instances enabled by Intel Xeon Scalable processors would allow you to process more requests per second and deliver a better experience to your customers and internal users.
