The Virtual Storage service supports four tiers of management. Fees vary depending on your usage on these tiers.

 

Ultra – suitable for high-performance applications and latency-sensitive, write-intensive applications.

 

Enterprise – suitable for databases and virtualised applications.

 

Value – suitable for high-capacity applications, including email, web content and file shares.

 

Capacity - suitable for backup, replication and archiving.

*Performance characteristics are based on provisioning the adequate sized storage volumes. Actual performance metrics are affected by latency, application workloads and throughput.

 

**Once supported throughput levels are exceeded, latency may exceed targeted response times.
