Compute C2 Burst (Beta)

General purpose virtual servers for light workloads

Compute C2 Burst provides virtual servers that are suited for light-weight usage that may occasionally have more demands on CPU. Commonly these are test, development, or proof of concept environments, but could be any workload that has a low average CPU load over time. Compared to our main Compute C1 virtual servers they are significantly cheaper to run. Usage over the minimum CPU provided does not incur additional costs, these virtual servers are provided on a consistent per-hour cost regardless of CPU usage.

They are suitable for production workloads that have low CPU demands, and have the same levels of redundancy as our main compute types.

Note: These virtual servers are currently in Beta, and subject to the conditions of Beta services as described in our Service Terms.

Compute C2 Burst Features

Intel Xeon Processors

Our Compute C2 Burst virtual servers are powered by Intel Xeon CPUs, providing strong compatibility and performance for general purpose workloads. Full support for x86 64-bit operating systems as expected from modern virtual server hosting.

Burstable CPU

Every server has a minimum CPU available, but can burst into more CPU cycles where available and needed.

Low cost, small servers

Compute C2 Burst covers smaller server sizes at a low price, from 1 to 8 vCPU with a range of minimum CPU time, and from 0.5GB to 32GB of RAM.

Billed by the hour

All virtual servers are billed by the hour while reserved. Servers can be turned off and shelved and their reservation released to save money, and unshelved when needed.

Fast Networking

All Compute C2 Burst virtual servers have access to 10Gbit/s networking and advanced networking capabilities such as Security Groups.
