SAKURA Cloud is an IaaS cloud service. IaaS stands for Infrastructure as a Service. In other words, it is a service providing resources which serve as system infrastructure; for example, virtual servers, disks, etc.
A list of servers currently being used is displayed at the [Server] menu of the SAKURA Cloud control panel . All basic operations and confirmation for the server are performed via the control panel.
Basic operations for server¶
These procedures are for creating new servers of required CPU and memory specifications, and for changing the number of connected disks and loaded NICs (network interface).
- Create/delete a server
- Detailed server information
- Creating/deleting an NIC and editing the connection destination
- Power operation
When creating new servers and disks, in addition to open source OS such as Linux and FreeBSD, you can create new servers and disks with pre-installation of Windows or other appliance software. By using this simultaneously with Disk modification , you can use a server quickly without the need for troublesome OS installation or settings configuration.
- Public archive/ISO
- Windows Serve plan
- SiteGuard Server Edition (WAF)
- Sophos UTM
- Netwiser Virtual Edition
This function is used to create a new server with the same structure and contents as the server and disk that are already created.
This function displays a virtual display screen that is directly connected to a server. You can enter information from the virtual keyboard and virtual mouse.
After creating the server, you can change optimal CPU/memory specifications when necessary depending on the usage and operating rate.
In SAKURA Cloud, you can use Tag function to categorize each resource. Also, by assigning special tags, you can change the action of the target resource.
SAKURA Cloud provides a sandbox zone. The resources created in this zone are not subject to billing and cannot be used. However, you can use the sandbox zone to verify control panel operation and API action.
Dedicated core plan¶
By changing to a dedicated CPU core, this server plan achieves highly stable performance that is resistant to effect from other customers.
This service can perform proprietary use of the host server which stores the virtual server. This enables monopolization of computational resources without influence from other customers.
Migration of [SAKURA VPS] disk¶
You can migrate the contents of the SAKURA VPS disk to the SAKURA Cloud disk for use.
Other server-related functions available in SAKURA Cloud
- Migrate host for server operation
- Security options
- Settings to disable meltdown vulnerability response
