Optimized plans for memory-intensive applications
High Memory instances offer a cost-effective way to run memory-intensive applications on dedicated CPUs. Perfect for when you need more RAM without increasing storage or vCPUs.
Optimized for in-memory databases and caches, a High Memory Compute Instance is perfect for high-performance querying and is an integral to any enterprise-level database solution.
Supercharge caching and data retrieval
Store more data in system memory to speed up retrieval times and increase your application's performance.
Run workloads that require heavy-duty enterprise-grade performance with large amounts of system RAM and 100% CPU resources 24/7 without any resource contention.
Run queries on large data volumes. High Memory Compute Instances make it possible to process your data completely in memory and quickly get query results.
Resources for High Memory Compute Instances are completely dedicated (not shared). The vCPU threads are assigned exclusively to cores and SMT threads on the hypervisor.
Only Pay For What You Need
Tune your Compute Instance to your unique application requirements. High Memory plans prioritize system RAM over other resources so you get exactly what you need.
Tuned for Memory-Intensive Workloads
High memory Compute Instances are optimized for memory-intensive workloads for fantastic price-to-performance ratio.
