Choosing a platform guarantees the type of physical processor in the data center and determines the set of valid vCPU and RAM configurations. The platform must be chosen when creating each virtual machine. For allowed vCPU and RAM configurations, see Levels of core performance.

    For more information about pricing for computing resources on different platforms, see Prices.
