Compute

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.

Features

High availability

A single compute instance delivers 99.95% availability. You can combine multiple compute instances on the same or different regions to increase the availability of your web applications.

Anti-affinity groups

You can launch multiple compute instances in anti-affinity groups, to ensure they never run on the same physical servers and maximise availability.
