Amazon Web Services has a x1.32xlarge EC2 instance with 128 CPU cores and
just under 2000 GiB of RAM for about $13 per hour. AWS actually has
per-second billing (with a 1 minute minimum) since late last year.

They have lots of other options as well of course. Here is their pricing
page: https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing/on-demand/
