By default we will give you access to one of the clouds (East or West) based on your location or the resource availability, so you do not need to specify where you want to be running.

Your project will be granted the default quota which consists of:

  • 2 instances (Virtual Machine)
  • 1 public IP
  • 15G of RAM
  • 4 VCPUs
  • 40G of permanent storage
  • 2 volumes
  • 2 snapshots

If you require more you will need to contact as the resources are allocated through the RAC/RPP process.
