Provisioning limits

Modified: 05 Jan 2018 21:26 UTC

In order to maintain the quality and performance of our cloud infrastructure, Joyent has a default total memory quota of 32GB DRAM for each data center. If you provision an instance or multiple instances with a combined DRAM exceeding 32GB, the quota will be hit and you will not be able to provision additional instances. To request an increase to the total memory quota or set the limit as needed to control costs, contact support.

Requests to provision instances that would exceed the memory limits will be refused.
