AMD has announced that SAP has chosen to execute its cloud ERP delivery operations for RISE with SAP on Google Cloud N2D virtual machines (VMs) powered by AMD EPYC processors. In order to provide its customers with improved performance and energy efficiency, SAP Business Suite workloads will now operate on AMD EPYC CPUs hosted on the Google Cloud N2D service.

More than ever, enterprises are looking toward digital modernization and many are adopting cloud-first architectures to complement their on-premise data centers.

Google Cloud, AMD and SAP aim to help customers achieve their most uncompromising performance goals during the latest necessary digital modernization efforts, while maintaining delivery on their energy efficiency, scalability and resource utilization needs.

Dan McNamara, senior vice president and general manager, server business unit, AMD, said: “AMD powers some of the most performant and energy-efficient cloud instances available in the world today.”

“As part of our engagement with Google Cloud and SAP, SAP has selected AMD EPYC CPU-powered N2D instances to host its Business Suite enterprise software workloads. This decision by SAP delivers the performance and performance-per-dollar of EPYC processors to customers looking to modernize their data centers and streamline IT spending by accelerating time to value on their enterprise applications.”

Hosted on Google Cloud, AMD EPYC processors are capable of offering a better and faster performance, as well as robust security features, and energy-efficient solutions for enterprise workloads in the cloud.

RISE with SAP helps maximize customer investments in cloud infrastructure and, paired with AMD EPYC processors and Google Cloud N2D VMs, aims to further modernize customer data centers and transform data into actionable insights, faster than ever.

Mark Lohmeyer,  VP, Compute, Google Cloud, said:  “Our collaboration with AMD and SAP delivers a scalable and performant solution for our joint customers seeking to move their workloads to the cloud.”
