One of the unique features of the Ionoscloud platform when compared with the other providers is that they allow you to define your own settings for cores, memory, and disk size without being tied to a particular size or flavor.

Note: The memory parameter value must be a multiple of 256, e.g. 256, 512, 768, 1024, and so forth.
