4.6. Managing Flavors

A flavor in Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure is a configuration template that simplifies VM deployment. It allows you to set the number of virtual CPU cores and the amount of RAM a virtual machine will use. By default, five predefined flavors are created with the following parameters:

Table 4.6.1 Default flavors
Name vCPUs Memory
tiny 1 512 MiB
small 1 2 GiB
medium 2 4 GiB
large 4 8 GiB
xlarge 8 16 GiB

Important

When choosing a flavor for a VM, make sure it satisfies the hardware requirements of the guest OS. For more information on VM hardware, see Managing Virtual Machines.

To create a custom flavor, do the following:

  1. On the Compute > Virtual machines > FLAVORS tab, click Create flavor.

  2. In the Create flavor window, specify a flavor name, a number of virtual CPU cores, an amount of RAM and click Create.
