Use Cases for Development Instances

Software Development

Development Instances have been designed to host your tests and compile your code for an hour or for years. Servers are delivered in a minute. They can be backed up, scaled up or kicked at any given time.

Small Application Deployment

InstantApps let you start the most popular applications without the command line. Using the console, you can set up a cloud storage with Nextcloud and Object Storage, an open source alternative to Slack with Mattermost, a VPN to securely browse the web and more. Installation is done in a few seconds and you can then customize the cloud instances with SSH.

Website & Blog Hosting

Development Instances can also host small to medium websites in the cloud. You can install WordPress in a few clicks directly from the console or a distribution of your choice to fully configure your web server. With a service level agreement (SLA) of 99,9 %, they are definitely suited for non-critical production usages.

Simple & Predictable Pricing

Development Virtual Instances are billed by the hour. They include a server, a volume and an IPv4, which let you develop, host and grow your projects.
