That’s because we let customers customise the virtual CPU core to optimise performance for different applications. Although our physical CPU cores are usually 2.5GHz each, customers can vary that. For example, if you have a server of size 10GHz, you can set that to have 10 virtual cores of 1GHz each or 4 virtual cores of 2.5GHz or anything in between. So if you have an application that needs more CPU threads but less performance per core, you’d set it to have ten cores. In this way you can boost performance without incurring additional resource costs. Don’t worry, the default is set to auto so it’s not a feature you need to deal with unless you want to.
Robert is a Co-Founder and CEO of CloudSigma along with his long-time friend Patrick Baillie. Robert & Patrick had a vision for a different style of cloud focused around customer requirements not computing frameworks created by the service provider; an open environment where end-users could define their infrastructure in a highly flexible way with little or no restrictions, just like they were used to doing in their own private environments. Their shared vision was the genesis of CloudSigma in 2009 in Zürich, Switzerland and as with many great things, it began life sketched out on a napkin!
Robert previously has experience in early stage venture capital and corporate finance in the City of London. Robert is a graduate in Economics from Cambridge University.
