Oracle today announced the general availability of new bare metal Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute instances, powered by Intel Xeon processors. These new instances add to Oracle's CPU- and GPU-based high performance computing (HPC) workloads, with the aim of convincing large businesses to bring legacy HPC workloads to the cloud for the first time. The instances are part of Oracle's new "Clustered Network" offering, which provides access to a low-latency, high-bandwidth remote direct memory access (RDMA) network. Oracle says it's the only cloud provider offering bare metal Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with RDMA. Also: Amazon's consumer business moves from Oracle to AWS, but Larry Ellison won't stop talking With the Clustered Network, companies can run performance-sensitive workloads, such as AI or engineering simulations.
