Scaleway expands its cloud ecosystem with the launch of its new line of PRO2 Instances running on the latest AMD processors.
- Designed with new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors, PRO2 Instances are ideally suited to host production environments
- PRO2 Instances deliver the best price/performance ratio allowing for savings of up to 40% in terms of infrastructure costs
Paris, June 15, 2022 - Scaleway, the cloud of choice, today releases the latest generation of high-end production instances, PRO2, powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ 7003 processors. This processor is only available by complete cloud ecosystems, and Scaleway is the only European provider currently selling them. The new line offers flexible ratios of CPU to RAM to cover all customers' infrastructure needs.
As the cloud market evolves, customers are looking for better ways to increase performance, cost, and energy efficiency of their most intensive compute workloads, all while providing a resilient backbone to their application architecture. PRO2 represents the best Scaleway has to offer to the fastest growing customers. PRO2 Instances, seamlessly integrated with most Scaleway products (Kubernetes Kapsule, LoadBalancer, Block Storage…), provide a complete solution and help customers significantly improve the performance, cost, and energy efficiency of their workloads running on Scaleway infrastructure.
“As customers have increasingly compute-intensive workloads, and as their storage and networking demands also grow, they are looking for improved price/performance ratio and energy efficiency. We consistently challenge ourselves to meet their needs and offer just that: game-changing products using the latest technology to enable our users to run their most critical workloads, with significantly better performance, cost savings and energy efficiency than anywhere else.” Audrey Pedro, CPO, Scaleway.
Scaleway’s new PRO2 Instances provide up to 37% better performance than the previous generation GP1 for production workloads (based on Geekbench testing), with improvements in all aspects: processor, storage, and bandwidth.
The higher performance of PRO2 Instances makes it possible to run a wide range of compute-intensive workloads in all production environments more efficiently.
PRO2 Instances offer the best price/performance ratio on the market
Compared to equivalent Instances supported by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors, PRO2 allows users to benefit from the same high-performance hardware at a 40% lower infrastructure cost than AWS, GCP, Azure and Digital Ocean.
