Yandex Compute Cloud

The service provides secure and scalable computing capacity for hosting, testing,
and prototyping your projects.

On-demand scalability

Choose the number of cores, disks, and VMs, the amount of RAM, and monitor their cost.

Different availability zones

You can place your VM in any of the three geographically distributed availability zones.

VMs with GPUs

Solve complex computing problems with NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 and NVIDIA® A100 graphics accelerators.

Convenient control

Manage your VMs in the console, via the CLI, API, or SDK, or using popular tools like Terraform, Packer, or Jenkins.

Secure data storage

Data is stored in encrypted form in accordance with the requirements of local regulatory, GDPR, and ISO industry standards.

Preconfigured images

Create a VM from an image with pre-installed software, e.g. a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).

Implement your projects using Compute Cloud

Web project hosting

Hosting your website in Yandex Cloud makes it easier to scale your infrastructure and adapt to changing needs, e.g. quickly redesigning your infrastructure to ensure availability for growing audiences. Moreover, we ensure the security of your website: Yandex Compute Cloud has a component that protects it against DDoS attacks.

Testing and prototyping

Virtual machines offer a convenient way to stress test versions of your products. Before launching new components, make sure to run load, functional, and regression testing. With Compute Cloud, you can quickly prototype your solutions and test your ideas at early development stages.

Windows Server in Yandex Cloud

Run Windows Server services in the cloud to build a hybrid infrastructure or completely migrate to Yandex Cloud. With Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange, you can configure permissions and email exchange within your company.

Getting started

Questions and answers

How do Yandex Cloud VMs differ from regular hosting?

Traditional hosting offers you resources on a lease with pre-agreed performance for a fixed time. Yandex Cloud VMs let you use cloud resources like your personal data center. At the same time, you receive all the advantages of the resilient infrastructure of Yandex’s data centers. You can scale your cloud infrastructure as your performance requirements change. This way you can control how many resources you are using at any given time and how much you pay for them.

How do preemptible VMs work?

Preemptible VMs let you use Yandex Cloud computing resources at a lower price. Preemptible VMs don’t differ from regular VMs, except that they’re terminated at least once every 24 hours. Stopped instances can be restarted without data loss.

I don’t need full-fledged VMs, but preemptible VMs don’t suit me either. What should I do?

If infrastructure uptime is key to your project and you can’t rely on preemptible VMs, consider VMs with partial core usage. You can save up to 65% using vCPUs, while you’re guaranteed to get the share of the core that you buy. Moreover, there is a chance to get up to 100% of the core if your neighbors aren’t using it at the same time you are. This option is suitable for pilot projects and demo stands.

How do you ensure data security?

Each VM boot disk is located in an availability zone, where it’s replicated to provide data protection.
