July 13, 2022 — Arm Ltd. announced that beginning today, Google Cloud customers and developers have access to Tau T2A VMs using the Ampere Altra CPU based on the Arm Neoverse N1 core. In addition, Arm said Google Cloud has joined the “Works on Arm” initiative that enables developers to build and test projects on the Arm architecture at no cost for a trial period.

“If you’ve been following Arm adoption across our other cloud customers, you are already familiar with the low-cost, energy efficient, and performant benefits of the Neoverse platform,” said Chris Bergey, SVP/GM, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm, in a blog. “Those performance-per-watt benefits are now helping to drive significant advantages of the new Tau T2A VMs: exceptional single-threaded performance, a compelling price, and broad support from operating systems, ISVs and Google Cloud services.”

“The philosophy behind Neoverse is that all cloud computing should be performant, efficient and sustainable. But we can’t achieve that goal unless Neoverse is in all the major public clouds, and today we can proudly say we are,” Bergey said.

He said “The long-standing collaboration between Arm and Google Cloud now spans enabling ultra-low power ML at the edge with tinyML, improving user experiences on Android, to building a cleaner cloud with Tau T2A VMs…”
