About VKube’s services

Which operating systems does VKube support?

VKube supports the Ubuntu operating system.

What is VKube container runtime?

VKube uses Containerd.

What is a Resource Unit?

VKube charges you only for the Resource Units you select, starting from $0.0025 per hour. Resource Units are calculated in the following way: n Resource Unit = n Gi and n*8 Gi of persistent storage

You can select from the following options:

  • 1 Resource Unit
  • 2 Resource Units
  • 4 Resource Units
  • 8 Resource Units
  • 16 Resource Units

For more information, please view our Developer resources (opens new window).

What happens after the expiration date of a container?

Once a container expires, the container in the service pod will shut down automatically, and the data in the persistent storage and containers' logs will be cleaned. If you want to extend the service, you should renew the service manually by clicking on My Service > Renew.

I need to access my past logs. How can I view them?

If you need to review your past data, please select “Persistent storage” when placing the order. By doing so, the container data will be saved in the host path of the node. To access your data, please set up sidecar containers.

Is there any restriction on the server resource usage of each container?

Yes. By keeping in mind that y is the available CPU resource for the pod, n represents the resource unit and pod memory, m is the total memory of the host node, and x is the total CPU resource of the host node, the limits are as follows:

  • The CPU usage limitation is calculated by the following equation: y = (n /m) * x
  • The network throughput limit per pod is 10Mi * n by default.
  • The available host path port limit is n host posts
  • The memory limit is less than n Gi

Currently, VKube doesn't support the upgrading/downgrading of resource units.

Can I extend the service duration of existing containers?
