A key concept in the VPC is the Resource. This is the smallest possible unit of a service or server resource. When configuring your cloud, you do not have to use all of the resources that are available; you can choose the just those resources needed for your specific project. The following resources are available:
- Processor Core (vCPU). Virtual processors built on 2.3 GHz Intel Xeon® E5-2670 v3 (Haswell) processors or 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon® E5-2680 v4 (Broadwell) processors.
- Basic Disk. A solution built on enterprise class SATA disks. Best for storing large amounts of data and for projects with few read and write operations. Maximum throughput: 100 MiB/s; 160 read IOPS; 80 write IOPS.
- Fast Disk. A solution built on SSDs. Faster response times and higher performance compared to basic disks. Maximum throughput: 500 MiB/s; 12800 read IOPS; 6400 write IOPS.
- Universal Disk. A solution built on SSDs. Ideal for storing virtual machine system disks. Maximum throughput: 150 MiB/s; 1650 read IOPS; 320 write IOPS.
- Public Subnet with 5 IP Addresses. Five public ("white") IP addresses, appropriate for production, including high-load projects. A separate VLAN with a /29 subnet: 8 public addresses, 5 of which will be available to the user. Virtual machines use public addresses directly, unlike floating addresses.
- Floating IP Address. A public address that can be reassigned to different machines. Appropriate for developing, configuring, and testing projects. Floating addresses attach to a virtual machine's private address and can be reassigned or detached without restarting. Floating addresses are legitimate external IP addresses, which are available until they are deleted by the client.
- Microsoft Windows Server Standard Edition 2012 R2 License. Separate licenses are applied for each server.
- User Image Storage. Disk space necessary for storing a custom image. Storage is billed separately from standard disks.
There are no limits to the number of server resources (computing power, memory, and data storage) and network services (public networks) available to a project and these can be increased by contacting tech support. Resources that are allocated to a project during its creation are called quotas, which can be used for creating servers and networks.
Accounts are given 3 TB of free incoming and outgoing traffic. After exceeding this amount, you will be billed at the prices listed in the control panel.
