Features of the Virtual Machine Service
- Server Ready
availability of basic server templates offered in pre-configured, templates, defined in the initial pool of subscription; computational size can be increased as needed; essential and minimal features for an economical and ready-to-use solution; dimensioned Internet and limited server cut; advantageous for implementation of test and development environments or for POC and in all cases where non-mission critical applications are to be tested; monitoring of the uptime and bronze SLA.
- Server Advance
configurable options as above but with the availability of dedicated Internet band and the ability to build custom template catalogs; you will also be able to activate additional resource monitoring and backup services with agent and DB integration; these optional services fall into the category of services managed by Engineering Managed Operations personnel.
VM protection is provided for all VMs as a basic service, by a day-to-day backup and one-week latency; end-user can restore autonomously from one of the recovery-points available to the virtual machine. Any special need for restoring selected contents or for restoring to a different target can be managed by support personnel.

Depending on the resources assigned to the subscription, there are available templates that can be identified by tags associated with different tiers of disk:
• TIER 2: service built on SAS storage infrastructure with small cut disks to maximize performance
• TIER 3: Hybrid pooling between SAS disks and NLSAS disks, ideal for good performance and excellent early performance
• TIER 4: service built on high-capacity NLSAS disks and high-performance storage environments
