Automatic Scaling CPU Scaling Modes

The scaling mode for CPU dictates how quickly new cores are added to your server, as well as the ratio that cores are assigned based on how many are currently invoiced. You only pay for the cores that are invoiced, and a higher performance mode increases how quickly you will be invoiced for new cores. While this means you may pay for more cores quicker, this ensures that you will have more cores assigned to your server. This does not affect the hardware your server runs on, we will automatically place you on the fastest available hardware based on the amount of cores you use. This does not affect the clock speed or how fast your CPU cores are, this affects your capacity to handle more CPU usage.

Lower Performance

We use the term "lower", because it's by no means low or poor performance compared to traditional web hosting plans. This mode will still scale your CPU resources up to the maximum you allow, it just does so more slowly. This means that if you see a sudden increase of usage on your CPU, your server is more likely to become overwhelmed and it will be slower to add more cores. Depending on your use-case, you may save money by paying for less cores.

Scaling starts at:
110% of your invoiced cores
Your assigned cores:
2x the invoiced cores

Standard Performance

This is the default setting, which we feel is a balanced compromise between cost and performance.

Scaling starts at:
100% of your invoiced cores
Your assigned cores:
3x the invoiced cores

High Performance

By scaling once you consume 75% of what you're invoiced for, you are quicker to accumulate more cpu cores.

Scaling starts at:
75% of your invoiced cores
Your assigned cores:
3x the invoiced cores

Extreme Performance

A more aggressive approach to performance than "high performance". This provides a lot more extra CPU cores than what you're using. This will handle unexpected increases in usage with ease. For instance, if your CPU usage is frequently peaking around 3 cores, you will be invoiced for 6 cores, and you'll have 18 total available. This allows for a substantial burst in usage. We recommend this mode for important servers, where your CPU costs are not significant compared to the value in maintaining high performance.

Scaling starts at:
50% of your invoiced cores
Your assigned cores:
3x the invoiced cores

Maximum Performance

This is the most CPU performance we can offer. This is the only mode that assigns 4 cores for each core that is invoiced, and scaling starts at just 25% of your invoiced cores. A good example of when to use this would be if you're running an important promotion, and you want to make absolutely certain your CPU scales with a big increase in demand.

Scaling starts at:
25% of your invoiced cores
Your assigned cores:
4x the invoiced cores
