When creating a Service, you can choose from a number of configurations which determine the type of VMs the service runs. We have chose these combinations of vCPUs | RAM and Storage based on workloads seen in our user community. This choice will drive the number of vCPUs, the size of RAM and the amount of storage available for a given Service.
- IO- and Compute-Optimized: These configurations are optimized for IO performance with the storage using SSDs (which are better suited for IOPs).
- Storage-Optimized: These configurations typically have larger amounts of overall storage using HDDs.
- Dev-Only: These configurations are typically smaller footprints (for low cost) designed for development / test scenarios.
