All DataCentred instances are attached to triple-redundant ephemeral storage on our Ceph storage cluster.

SSD optimised instances are easy to provision by attaching instances to SSD boot volumes via the web interface, the APIs or a CLI.

We include one IPV4 address free of charge with each tenancy. Additional IPV4 addresses can be provisioned via the self-service portal.
