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.
