Our service offerings
Exoscale offers 4 types of cloud services:
Infrastructure as a Service
Exoscale’s Compute offering lets you start an instance of your favorite operating system in less than 40 seconds. You manage your servers and we take care of the rest.
The full list of available templates is publicly available and updated frequently.
You can start with an instance as small as 1 CPU, 512 MB RAM and a 10 GB disk - and scale in a matter of seconds - to an instance as huge as 24 CPU, 225 GB RAM and a 1.6 TB disk.
You can find your perfect instance size in the pricing section. If you need more, feel free to contact us.
You can also find out how easy it is to start an instance in our Compute quickstart guide.
Storage as a Service
Exoscale’s Secure Object Storage (SOS) allows you to store, distribute and manage large quantities of files (also known as objects).
When you need to deploy an instance or an application, you want it to be accessible in a simple and reliable way. Our DNS service allows you to control your domain name and its records from the Portal and also from the API.
