How to Start on GCP

How to start

For machine type instances, you can

  • SELECT the CPU platform (including the Intel® Xeon® Scalable  processor codenamed “Skylake”)
  • INDICATE preferred region/zone according to your location
  • CHOOSE any number of vCPUs (up to 96) and any amount of memory (up to 1.4 TB of RAM)
  • SELECT CPU through selector tool (Slylake can be specified through the CPU selector tool)

Intel Xeon Scalable processor (Skylake) is now available in 16 out of 17 GCP regions
