cloudet

There are two types of cloudlet in OXIDE:

  • Reserved Cloudlets are reserved in advance and will be charged irrespective of your actual resource usage. In exchange, you’ll get significant automatic discounts based on their number.
  • Dynamic Cloudlets are added & removed automatically according to the amount of resources that is required by your application in a particular moment of time (assigned when load goes up and removed as soon as it drops down). As a result, you pay based on your actual resource usage.

The granularity of the cloudlets makes it possible to allocate a number of resources that precisely fits your current needs and will scale with your project respectively.

More details >>

OXIDE provides automatic vertical and horizontal scaling of resources, making hosting of your applications truly flexible.

Automatic vertical scaling ensures adding the required amount of RAM and CPU inside a node (container) when the load grows, and releases resources back if they are not needed anymore.

To set up automatic vertical scaling, you just need to open the environment topology wizard and specify the Scaling Limit of cloudlets (RAM and CPU), maximum amount of resources available for each node. The further provisioning of the needed resources will be automatically performed by the platform based on the application load.

Automatic vertical scaling

The number of nodes within a single container layer (app servers, databases, load balancers etc.) can be also easily scaled horizontally via environment topology using “-” and “+” buttons.

scaled horizontally

Automatic horizontal scaling can be configured by means of tunable triggers via Settings > Monitoring > Auto Horizontal Scaling. Add the auto-scaling for the required node and resource, set up the conditions and enable email notifications to be informed about any important changes. The rest will be done by OXIDE.

Automatic horizontal scaling

Resources are charged on hourly base:

  • RAM and CPU (cloudlet resource unit)
  • Disk space
  • External traffic
  • Public IP
  • OXIDE SSL
