Cloud Virtual Machine

Stable, secure, resilient, high-performance cloud computing services that meet your diverse business needs in real time

Overview

Cloud Virtual Machine (CVM) brings you secure and flexible computing capabilities. You can obtain and enable CVM in the cloud in just minutes to meet your computing needs, and as your business needs change, you can scale up or down your computing resources with ease. CVM is billed by the actual usage of resources, saving you real money in computing. With the aid of CVM, your hardware and software costs will be significantly reduced and the IT-related OPS will be simplified.

Benefits

Flexible Computing

It only takes minutes for you to add or delete CVMs to meet your ever-changing business needs. By defining relevant policies, you can make sure that the CVM instances used can be seamlessly scaled up during periods of higher demand to ensure application availability, and scaled down during periods of lower demand to save costs.

Diverse Configuration

Tencent Cloud offers various instance types for your choice based on your actual needs. The CPU, memory, disk and bandwidth configuration for every single instance can be adjusted flexibly to meet the resource needs of your applications. Supported operating systems include various Linux distributions and Windows Server versions.

High Stability and Reliability

The Cloud Block Storage mounted on the CVM provides a triplicate storage policy, ensuring fast data migration and recovery in case of downtime of any copy. With the sophisticated network virtualization technology and ENI binding technology, the CVM runs on a robust network architecture in T3+ IDCs for high network availability.

Easy Management

You can access Tencent Cloud CVM as an administrator with full control. To manage the CVM is as easy as to manage traditional servers. You can use various tools such as the Tencent Cloud Console and API to connect to your CVM instances for operations like restarting and changing network configuration.

Secure Network

CVM runs on a logically isolated private network and ensures the security of your cloud resources with access control lists and security groups over the network. You also have complete control over the configuration of your private network environment, including custom segmenting, IP addresses, routing policies, etc.

All-Around Protection

Basic protection features are provided, such as Trojan detection, brute force attack prevention and vulnerability scanning. Moreover, DDoS prevention is available to protect against mass traffic attacks. The ultra-high bandwidth and super-powerful purging capability of Dayu BGP high defense system are designed to cope with website attacks.

Low Costs

The CVM is deployed in the cloud, saving your costs in upfront infrastructure construction and later OPS. CVM instance is billed in a postpaid way to adapt to different application scenarios, so you only pay for the actual usage of resources.

Service Integration

CVM can be highly integrated with most of Tencent Cloud services, such as Cloud Object Storage (COS), Cloud Database (CDB) and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), providing the user with complete solutions for different business needs in computation, storage, network transmission and much more.

Features

Tencent CVM is powerful enough to build scalable enterprise-level applications that are capable of disaster recovery.
Instance Types

Series 2 Cloud Virtual Machine

Our latest launched Series 2 CVMs have upgraded hardware and are equipped with Intel® Xeon® V4 processors for 40% higher integer and floating-point computing performance and DDR4 memory for 30% higher performance. Network capability is fully enhanced with a packet forwarding rate of up to 300,000 pps.

A Rich Set of Model Configuration

The CVM is offered in a variety of instance types suitable for different application scenarios for your choice. Those instance types contain different CPU, memory, storage and bandwidth configurations, so you can choose whatever is best for your applications. Every instance type has multiple instance sizes, which means you can scale up your resources to meet the target workload.

Flexible Configuration Adjustment

The CVM offers an extensive range of computing, networking and disk configurations, and supports capacity expansion. You can adjust the networking capability without turning the CVM off. If it is turned off, you can adjust the hardware and expand the disk capacity based on Cloud Block Storage.
For sudden business peaks, you can choose postpaid resources, enable/disable computing instances anytime and only pay for what you use. The billing is on a second-level to minimize the costs.
You can upgrade to the instance specs with higher performance and capacity quickly by clicking on the page. Your business can be normally accessed and used during the upgrade, so quick and smooth capacity expansion can be made possible to meet your fast-growing business needs.

Multiple Regions and Availability Zones

Tencent CVM managed data centers are located in multiple regions across the globe. You can choose the regions near which your target customers are based to deploy the CVMs, reducing access latency and improving business experience.
Multiple availability zones isolated from one another are located in each region. If your business requires a higher disaster recovery capability, you can deploy your CVM instances in different availability zones for the same region, protecting your applications from being affected by the downtime of any single availability zone.
