Cloud server configurations

When creating a cloud server, you can select the required number of virtual CPU cores (vCPU), memory (RAM) and local disk size (optional).

Two types of configurations are available:

Once the cloud server is created, you can change configuration.

A cloud server of any configuration can be made preemptible.

GPUs can be added to configurations — see the Create a cloud server with GPUs instructions for details.

Available processors

The prebuilt and custom configuration lines differentiate the available processors.

You can view the availability of configurations in regions in the [Cloud Servers] availability matrix(/control-panel-actions/availability-matrix.mdx#cloud-servers).

Processors with DDR4 REG 2133-2933 MHz.

Fixed configurations

You can view the availability of configurations in regions in the [Cloud Servers] availability matrix(/control-panel-actions/availability-matrix.mdx#cloud-servers).

Standard Line

A line of fixed cloud server configurations with balanced 1:4 vCPU:RAM resource allocation (except for entry-level and maximum configurations).

Suitable for most tasks, such as executing code for web services and applications, hosting online stores, and creating test environments.

Available from 1 to 36 vCPUs, 1 GB to 128 GB RAM, 8 GB to 1.25 TB local disk.

CPU Line

A line of fixed configurations in which vCPU:RAM resources are balanced in a 1:2 ratio.

Suitable for video transcoding, machine learning, data processing, building CI/CD systems and other tasks that require performance and compute speed on vCPUs.

Available from 4 to 24 vCPUs, 8 GB to 48 GB RAM, 128 GB to 512 GB local disk.

Memory Line

A line of fixed configurations in which vCPU:RAM resources are balanced at a 1:8 ratio.

The configurations provide high performance for workloads handling large data packages to accommodate demanding databases or SAP and 1C enterprise applications.

Available from 2 to 16 vCPUs, 16 GB to 128 GB RAM, 64 GB to 512 GB local disk.

GPU Line

Fixed cloud server configurations with dedicated GPUs.

Optimized for GPU computing, such as video transcoding, training neural networks, or creating remote workstations.

Use only with a network boot disk.

Available from 4 to 32 vCPUs, 1 to 4 GPUs, 32 GB to 320 GB RAM.

See the Create a cloud server with GPU instructions for more details.

Shared Line

Fixed cloud server configurations with the ability to use and pay for only part of the core.

Shared Line configurations are less expensive than other lines and are suitable for tasks that do not require constant and full core utilization, such as running staging, a website, bringing up a network, or training.

In Shared Line, a single core can be used by multiple clients at the same time. When creating this configuration, you must specify the proportion of vCPUs that will be reserved for your server: 10%, 20%, or 50%. Cloud server performance will never fall below this fraction and may temporarily go up to 100% if other clients are not maximizing resources or part of the core is not leased.

Use only with a network boot disk.

Available from 1 to 4 vCPUs, 512 MB to 8 GB RAM.

HighFreq Line

Fixed configurations of high-performance cloud servers with CPU speeds up to 3.6 GHz and memory speeds up to 3,200 MHz.

Suitable for databases such as 1C Bitrix, game servers and other tasks that require high speed processing and response.

Use only with a local boot disk — this helps avoid network latency.

Available from 1 to 8 vCPUs, 2 GB to 64 GB RAM, 30 GB to 960 GB local disk.

SGX Line

Fixed cloud server configurations that support SGX technology. The technology allows an application to create protected areas in RAM.

Suitable for storing and processing sensitive data, including personal and payment information.

Available from 1 to 24 vCPUs, 4 GB to 96 GB RAM, 2 GB to 64 GB EPC, 32 GB to 1 TB local disk.

See the Create SGX cloud server instructions for details.

List of fixed configuration flavor IDs

You can use the IDs of ready-made fixed configuration flavors when creating a cloud server through Terraform.

The availability of configurations depends on region.

The Name field contains the names of the flavors:

  • m1.XX — OpenStack base flavors, similar to arbitrary configurations;
  • SL1.XX — fixed configurations of the Standard Line;
  • CPU1.XX — CPU Line;
  • RAM1.XX — Memory Line;

Arbitrary configurations

You can view the availability of configurations in regions in the [Cloud Servers] availability matrix(/control-panel-actions/availability-matrix.mdx#cloud-servers).

Arbitrary configuration can be configured in the control panel when creating a server or create your own flavor using OpenStack CLI or Terraform (a flavor is a server configuration in OpenStack terminology).

In arbitrary cloud server configurations, you can choose any ratio of resources: vCPU, RAM, and local disk size (if local disk is used to create the server). GPUs can be added.

Local disk size5 GB — 512 GB5 GB — 1.23 TB**
GPU1-81-8

* If the configuration has more than 8 vCPU cores, the vCPU:RAM ratio must be at least 1:2. For example, for 10 vCPUs, you need at least 20 GB of RAM.

** If the configuration has more than 8 vCPU cores, the vCPU:Local Disk ratio must be at least 1:32. For example, a 10 vCPU requires a disk size of at least 320 GB.

If fixed and random cloud server configurations are not suitable, order a suitable configuration. Create a ticket and specify the resource ratio:

  • vCPU:RAM — at least 1:2;
  • vCPU:RAM:Local disk — at least 1:2:16.

Create a flavor

  1. Open OpenStack CLI.

  2. Create a flavor:

    openstack flavor create \
    --private --vcpus <vcpu> \
    --ram <ram_size> \
    --disk <disk_size> \
    <flavor_name>

    Specify:

    • --private — the key specifies that the flavor will be visible within only one account;
    • <vcpu> is the number of vCPUs;
    • <ram_size> — size of RAM in MB;
    • optional: <disk_size> — local disk size in GB;
    • <flavor_name> — the name of the flavor, must be unique (including not matching the names of deleted flavor). You can view the flavor list by using the openstack flavor list command.

    Example of creating a flavor with 1 vCPU, 1 GB RAM, local disk size of 5 GB:

    openstack flavor create --private --vcpus 1 --ram 1024 --disk 5 NEW_FLAVOR

View a list of configurations

A list of all available configurations can be viewed in the control panel when creating a cloud server or via the OpenStack CLI (ready-made flavors and self-created flavors will be displayed).

  1. Open OpenStack CLI.

  2. Check out the list of available flavors:
