Product Information

Google Compute Engine is a service that provides virtual machines that run on Google infrastructure. The service allows users to launch large compute clusters on Google’s infrastructure. The Google Compute Engine API provides users with an interface for interacting with their resources. It is a customizable compute service that lets you create and run virtual machines on Google’s infrastructure. You can create a Virtual Machine (VM) that fits your needs in the cost-effective, secure cloud environment which spans 23 Google Cloud regions.

You might use Compute Engine when you:
• Are migrating existing applications through lift-and-shift or lift-and-modernize approaches to kick off your infrastructure modernization journey.
• Run Windows or other 3rd party applications where you are bringing your own license (BYOL) to CGP or use a license-included VM image. These include ones available in the GCP Marketplace.
• Have highly customized business logic or you want to run your own storage system.
This service offers the choice of preset or custom machine sizes that most closely resemble your on-premise structure to best support your workloads. A partner will do this by rightsizing your environment with recommendations for the machine sizes that work best with your instance types and managed instances groups.

Google Cloud offers a wide range of Compute Engine machine types. These include:
• General-purpose N1, N2, N2D and E2 machines that offer the best price-performance ratio.
• Memory-optimized VMs that offer higher memory per core, up to 12 TB.
• Compute-optimized machines that offer the highest performance per core for compute-intensive workloads.
• Shared-core machines for N1 and E2 VMs for a cost-effective way to run small, non-resource-intensive applications.
You also can use what are known as preemptible VMs. These are low-cost, short-term instances that are ideal for running batch jobs and fault-tolerant workloads. Google Cloud indicates that these VMs cut budgets up to 80% over traditional VMs but offer the same performance and capabilities for short-term use.
