Cloud Server Plans Summary

There are four types of cloud server plans: two shared CPU plan and two dedicated CPU plans.

Plan CPU vCPUs Memory Storage Processor
Standard Share 1 - 18 2 - 64GB 60 - 1280GB - Intel Xeon Platinum
- 2nd Gen AMD EPYC
Memory Optimized Dedicated 2 - 16 24 - 128GB 200 - 600GB 2nd Gen AMD EPYC
High Frequency CPU Share 4 - 8 8 - 32GB 250 - 550GB NVMe SSD 2nd Gen AMD EPYC
Dedicated CPU Dedicated 2 - 32 6 - 64GB 200 - 1280GB NVMe SSD 2nd Gen AMD EPYC

Recommendations for plan types

The following table provides plan type recommendations for different workloads.

Upgrade Plan

You can initiate an upgrade order by choosing your desired plan within LayerPanel during the service period. An order will be generated in a pro-rated amount for the time remaining on your existing subscription. You have the option to immediately process the upgrade of service plan or do it later, before confirming the payment. If opted for immediate upgrade, the server will be resized automatically once the payment process is confirmed.


Bandwidth refers to the public data transfer of inbound and outbound network traffic, both to and from LayerStack data centers around the globe.

When monthly data usage reaches that data transfer limit mentioned on each service plan, cloud servers service continues without data capping, but the connection speed will be throttled, and the connection experience may be affected. You can check your data usage in LayerPanel 2. Also, you always have the option of moving to a larger plan for increasing the data limit.

Data transfer between Cloud Servers over the private VLAN is unlimited and not charged.
