A vCPU Server is a new virtual machine provisioned and hosted in one of IONOS's physical data centers. It behaves like a physical server and can be used as a standalone product or combined with other IONOS cloud products. To configure a vCPU Server, choose a preset (S, M, L, XL, and XXL) that suits your needs. Presets are a combination of specific vCPU-to-RAM ratios. The number of vCPUs and RAMs differs based on the selected preset. You can also tailor the vCPU-to-RAM ratios to meet your requirements—the Preset automatically changes to Custom when you edit the predefined ratio.
