On demand virtual device via API, reliable and safe

logo du service "elastic cloud server"

This service allows you to create cloud servers on demand. Elasticity functions as well as a wide range of instances will allow you to create the servers your applications need, whether they are Big data, ERP, website …

Elastic Cloud Servers are Virtual Machines with computing and memory resources as well as an operating system. These resources are automatically attached to monitoring, back up, load balancer, network, security and storage functions. This wide range of associated services will allow you to set up a functional server in a few clicks that can be accessed securely online or through a dedicated console.

You can start, stop, resize the VMs by using the Flexible Engine Console or by using the API of the solution.
