On-demand, scalable, high-performance compute instances

The compute service allows you to obtain and configure compute capacity according to business demand. When using it, there are no waiting or lead times. You can create or scale compute instances up and down in seconds via the web dashboard or APIs.

You have complete control over your virtual machines, including root and console access. You can choose from a list of pre-configured operating system images (Linux and Windows), or to upload your own using the imaging service. Full support for volume-based backups, shelving of servers to reduce costs, and a variety of sizes and hardware features.
