|Plan||Number of CPU cores||RAM||Storage||Price|
Dedicated compute for CPU-intensive workloads. Dedicated CPU instances run on their own CPU cores in the Linode infrastructure. No sharing the processor with other instances.
Balanced performance for nearly any workload. Affordable Shared CPU plans are ideal for general workloads and include generous amounts of free bundled transfer.
High Memory instances offer a cost-effective way to run memory-intensive applications on dedicated CPUs. Perfect for when you need more RAM without increasing storage or vCPUs.
|VPSBenchmarks has not tested any plan for this instance type yet.|
