Compute instances & containers


City Cloud compute is flexible and cost efficient cloud computing power. Creating, booting and scaling your compute instances takes a few seconds and you only pay for the allocated resources by the second. City Cloud Compute is powered by OpenStack Nova which sits on top of our Linux servers, in separate installations for each of our locations, to provide this core feature as part of the City Cloud public cloud platform.

Containers

Provisioning of compute instances & containers




Provisioning of compute instances (aka virtual servers) can be done through City Controlpanel (CCP), our custom built cloud management system. CCP is the perfect place to start your City Cloud journey where you can easily create, scale and build your stack from the ground up by utilising our storage and networking features. Combined with Orchestration and our powerful APIs, you can automate your entire it infrastructure in City Cloud.

The benefits of deploying compute instances in City Cloud

 
Elasticity

In City Cloud you can increase or decrease capacity at any time to adapt to the needs of your applications and workloads. Our load balancing feature allows you to maintain availability and auto scaling is done with the use of OpenStack Heat and a monitoring tool of your choice.

 
Total control

Managing your virtual servers is no different from managing any other machine. You have root access and can restart, upgrade, downgrade and interact with your servers at any time.

 
Cost efficient

We offer a large variety of virtual server instances which are all billed by the second. Start off small and scale up and down as your needs change to minimise cost.
