Yandex Compute Cloud

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

On-demand scalability
You can choose the necessary 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
New
Solve complex computing problems with NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 graphics accelerators.
Convenient control
Manage your VMs in the management console, via the CLI, API, or SDK, or using popular tools such as 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
You can create a VM from an image with pre-installed software. For example, a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).

Implement your projects using Compute Cloud

Web project hosting

If you host your website in Yandex.Cloud, it’s easier to scale your infrastructure to adapt to changing needs. For instance, you can quickly redesign the infrastructure to ensure availability for a growing audience. 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 benchmark test versions of your products. Before launching some new components, make sure to run load testing, functional testing, and regression testing on them. Moreover, with Yandex Compute Cloud, you can quickly prototype your solutions and test your ideas at early stages of development.

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.

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.
