/ Compute in short
We offer a wide range of flavors to help you to create compute instances in OpenStack. You can choose from several images. We have all common operating systems already available for you as an image; CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Windows, and CoreOS. If you want to use another operating system, you can upload and use your own image.
You can easily manage your OpenStack environment via the web-based Horizon dashboard, the OpenStack API, or OpenStack command line client.
/ Reliability and performance
When creating a new instance, you can choose the best suitable flavor and image. An image consists of a pre-installed operating system and we have the most common ones already available for you; CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Windows, but also CoreOS can be used immediately. If you want to use another operating system, or want to include your application in your image, you can create, upload and use an your own image.
/ Choose from different flavors
We offer four types of flavors:
- The standard flavor can be used to quickly scale up to a larger instance (more RAM, HD and CPU). It's not possible to scale down to a smaller instance;
- The small HD flavors are the basis for several instances. They have a relative small boot disk, primarily for the operating system and a limited number of applications;
- The medium HD flavors are a great choice when you need a bigger boot disk;
- The high memory flavors are perfect for workloads that need lots of memory.
The small HD, medium HD and high memory instances can be scaled up and down to other flavors within the same group, because the HDs have the same size. Furthermore, you can connect additional storage as volumes to all instances. You get 1 IP address per flavor by default. If you do not want to use this IP address, we will deduct 1 euro from your monthly fee. Current OpenStack users can find their rates in our knowledge base.
