Features

We offer an extensive array of features to fit your needs:

  • Snapshots: with just a couple of clicks, you can snapshot your virtual machine. A snapshot is an image containing a consistent state of your VM’s disk. Our snapshot is built on qemu and libvirt live snapshotting technology, so no downtime is required to take a snapshot. Snapshots are often used for either backup or cloning/templates.
  • Custom Images: right from our control panel, you can upload your own ISO images and qcow2 templates, and immediately begin provisioning VM instances from them. Use the browser-based noVNC client or your own desktop VNC client to complete installation from ISOs.
  • Tenant Networks and Load Balancers: tenant networks are isolated virtual networks. Virtual machines provisioned on tenant networks can acquire any IP address in the assigned private subnet, enabling more complex network architectures. Scalable load balancers can be created in tenant networks to balance TCP connections or HTTP requests between several VMs. You can define health monitors to periodically check on your VMs so that VMs are automatically disabled on the load balancers if a VM goes offline.
  • Volumes: volumes are detachable block storage devices that are stored on our high availability Ceph RBD cluster. Volumes can be attached to and detached from virtual machines on demand; this means that, if you store application data on a volume, you can test a new version of the application on a new virtual machine, and commit the upgrade simply by detaching the volume from the old VM and attaching it to the new VM.
  • Security Groups: security groups allow you to define ingress and egress traffic restrictions on groups of virtual machines. Unlike iptables and similar firewalls that run inside your VM, security groups are enforced at the infrastructure level and can be applied to multiple VMs; this removes the possibility of accidental firewall deactivation and simplifies firewall management.
  • Uptime Monitoring: we developed an open-source, fault-tolerant uptime monitoring application and provide it as a free service (excluding SMS and phone call notifications) that is configurable directly from our panel. Add HTTP, TCP, ICMP, and SSL certificate expiration checks so that you know when your application is down.
  • API: our powerful API allows you to write software to automate VM management.
  • Bandwidth: although VM plans come with a fixed bandwidth allocation, we have a pay-as-you-go system for additional bandwidth, where additional traffic is $0.003/GB ($3/TB). You don’t need to reserve bandwidth in advance, so you end up only paying for what you use. Additionally, the bandwidth allocation is accounted on a per-region basis, so extra bandwidth from some of your VMs can be used on other VMs.
  • Startup Scripts: create shell or cloud-init scripts that are executed when newly provisioned VMs boot for the first time. When creating a new VM, you can select any number of startup scripts that you have defined on your account. Use startup scripts to automatically configure VMs for your application.
  • Advanced DNS Hosting: our DNS service, which is free for up to one million queries per month, includes advanced monitoring and geo-targeting functionality. Couple records with our uptime monitoring system to failover from a failed server to a backup server, or to disable specific records in a round-robin group when a subset of servers go down.
