Choosing the best Reserved Cloud Server for your needs

Frank CheungThe Reserved Cloud Server is your own fully managed, SSD-powered private Cloud Server with resources that are dedicated exclusively to your sites. There are several reasons that a Reserved Cloud Server might be right for you:

– If you run a mission-critical website and can’t run the risk of performance issues caused by other sites on a shared instance.

– If your site uses memory-intensive applications. When an application uses more than 500 MB of memory on our shared instances, the application is recycled, causing an unnecessary restart.

– If you do not want your site to timeout due to inactivity (no visit within 30 minutes). That inactivity threshold is not present on Reserved Cloud Servers.

– If your site has high CPU requirements, on a shared instance the CPU priority could be lowered for your site. On a Reserved Cloud Server, that will never happen.

Reserved Cloud Servers come in three sizes, and here are our recommendations for each:

Small Reserved Cloud Server: 1 GB of memory and 1 CPU

Medium Reserved Cloud Server: 2 GB of memory and 2 CPUs

Large Reserved Cloud Server: 4 GB of memory and 4 CPUs
