Server Profiles in Cleura Cloud


A balanced server profile that suits a majority of common compute workloads such as web servers, small to medium databases, and development environments.

Low Latency Disk

Low-latency server profiles utilises a faster storage system to enhance overall system performance. Perfect for applications that require fast and responsive access to data.

High Intensity CPU

A compute resource that utilise faster processors, designed to handle computationally intensive workloads such as database optimisations and other complex computations.


GPU-based compute resources utilise specialised processors that enables efficient execution of parallel processing tasks, machine learning, and scientific computing.

Launch your first virtual machine

Getting started with Cleura Cloud is a simple process and all it requires is an account. After you have created and verified your account you can start building your entire cloud infrastructure through Cleura Cloud Management Panel or using our API.

3 Benefits of Cleura Virtual Machines


You can quickly increase or decrease your virtual machine resources at any time to adapt to the needs of your applications and workloads. Our load balancing features allow you to maintain availability, and you can implement auto-scaling using OpenStack Heat and a monitoring tool of your choice.


Managing your virtual machines is no different from working with any other server. You have root access to your virtual machines and can restart, upgrade, downgrade and interact with your servers.

Cost efficient

We offer numerous virtual machine profiles to fit any kind of need. All our compute resources are billed by the second. Start off small and scale up or down as your needs change to balance costs and performance.
Virtual machines (VMs) are a key part of virtualisation technology and essentially act as separate, virtual computers within a single physical server. They use software called a hypervisor to share and allocate the resources of the physical server, such as memory and processing power, between different VMs.

This setup is central to cloud computing, where virtual servers can be hosted in the cloud - either a private cloud for one organisation, a public cloud shared by many, or Compliant Cloud solutions. VMs allow efficient and flexible use of hardware, as they can run different operating systems and applications independently.
A virtual machine (VM) works by mimicking a real computer within a software environment using virtualisation technology. It's like having several computers running on one physical machine, each with its own tasks and operating systems.

The key to this process is the hypervisor, a piece of software that shares the resources of the physical server, such as its processing power and memory, between these virtual machines. The hypervisor effectively manages these resources, ensuring that each VM operates independently and does not interfere with the others. This management includes distributing CPU time, allocating memory and even handling storage and network connectivity. Each VM behaves as if it has its own hardware, running its own operating system and with its own set of applications.
A key benefit of virtual machines is that each VM operates independently with its own dedicated resources. This results in efficient hardware utilisation, reduced costs and improved scalability. VMs managed by a hypervisor also improve security by isolating different applications and processes; if one VM is compromised, the others remain unaffected.

In cloud-based virtualisation, VMs provide enormous flexibility by allowing the user to quickly scale up or down to meet demand - ideal for both private and public cloud use cases. VMs also simplify disaster recovery and provide simple backup solutions as they can be replicated and moved between servers in a virtual network.

All of this, combined with the user benefits of instant creation, cost effectiveness and simplicity, makes virtual machines popular for everything from testing new software to running large-scale applications in the cloud.
