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, and are still 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 only available in the "nz-por-1" region, with availability in "nz-hlz-1" expected in 2024.
