Managing packages

Modified: 27 Nov 2017 20:44 UTC

In Triton, a package specifies the resources allocated to an instance. Docker and Linux images on Triton run on bare metal. You pay for only the containers you use, not for costly and inefficient virtual machine container hosts.

These resources include:

Triton offers packages as small as 128MB to as large as 110GB to meet different application needs.

Triton will automatically assign containers the g4-highcpu-1G package, which gives 1GB of RAM, 0.5vCPU, and 25GB of Disk. While this automation is fine for short term projects, it's better to plan and run instances sized correctly from the start.

Perform sizing exercises before deployment. Learn more about how to size packages for your application.
