Relationship between service resources

    The main entity used by the Instance Groups component of Yandex Compute Cloud is an instance group.

    Each group consists of one or more instances of the same type. Group instances may reside in different availability zones and regions. Learn more about the Cloud geography.

    When creating a group, describe the following:

    • Instance template: specify the required number of vCPUs and amount of RAM.
    • Policies: specify the type of the new group, availability zones, and deployment parameters.

    The template will be used to deploy all instances in the group. For a list of available group types, see Group types.

    The instance group created in the folder can be accessed by all instances connected to the same cloud network. Learn more about networking.
