Choose any new AMD EPYC 7642 or AMD EPYC 7F72 CPU model on IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers and get $2,000 USD off. Get up to 96-cores with custom RAM and storage. Enter promo code AMDNOW1.

IBM Cloud is excited to announce a limited-time promotional offer for performance-heavy workloads in the cloud—$2,000 USD off our new AMD EPYC CPU architecture on select bare metal servers. We’ve also extended the expiration date to November 30, 2020, giving you time to explore our new bare metal-on-AMD lineup and get in on this deal.

Why AMD EPYC CPU technology?

If your workloads demand high core count and throughput in a two-socket system, the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ family of processors provides access to large core scaling, increased memory bandwidth, and some of the highest CPU performance possible for a variety of workloads—like enterprise-level data base crunching, multiplayer gaming clouds with worldwide reach, and fluid dynamics applications.

In addition, the AMD EPYC architecture is designed around security from the ground up, with capabilities including encryption of main memory and virtual machine memory, and cryptographically to help secure the boot process.
