Instance

Nipa Cloud provides powerful instances to support various use cases. Instance types consist of a combination of various parts of the CPU, memory, storage, and network capabilities. We let you choose the right mix of resources for your application, and adjust the size of resources to meet the requirements of the target workload.

Features

Image

Nipa cloud offers several image types as follows

Cloud Firewall

Cloud Firewall is an instance’s security system. Cloud Firewall works like a Virtual Firewall that controls access to an Instance over both incoming and outgoing networks.

Machine Type

You can choose to create the specification of the instance as needed, including vCPU, Ram, Disk, and Bandwidth. There are four tiers of machine types, classified as Eco, General, General2, High memory, and High memory2.

Hostname

You can specify the instance name according to the hostname that will be used. The name created from the instance will also be the default value of the hostname. You create more than 1 instances, with the hostname and suffix number, e.g., hostname-01.

External IP

By default, External IP will be created for every instance. You can choose to use the old External IP that is not in use or choose to disable External IP. In addition, you can directly connect External IP to the Instance without going through the private network.

Network

Select Subnet and the IP Address (Port) that has already been created or choose the Auto-assign new IP address.

Instance Volume

To attach volume size (GB) to the instance.

Authentication

For Linux instance, you can choose from 2 types of authentication: password or keypairs (for higher security, please see more at Keypair page). For Windows, you can only use password authentication. The password must apply to the standard of Security in setting codes.

Cloud Firewall

Cloud Firewall is an instance’s security system. Cloud Firewall works like a Virtual Firewall that controls access to an Instance over both incoming and outgoing networks.

Distributions

Providing popular OS images for both Windows and Linux with stable and latest releases.

Marketplace

Providing standard and popular Image application installation services. You can use the application immediately by creating an instance from the Marketplace.

Images

Providing services to create instances from Backup and Snapshot.

Volumes

Providing service to create instances from volumes.

Authentication

For Linux instance, you can choose from 2 types of authentication: password or keypairs (for higher security, please see more at Keypair page). For Windows, you can only use password authentication. The password must apply to the standard of Security in setting codes.

By default, External IP will be created for every instance. You can choose to use the old External IP that is not in use or choose to disable External IP. In addition, you can directly connect External IP to the Instance without going through the private network.

Instances list

The instances list page displays information about all available instances with name, internal & external IP, and color status of an instance. On this page, you can start, stop, and remove multiple instances at once.

Overview

page shows the overall information of the selected instance, including the OS version, application (marketplace), Cloud Firewall, interface, and volumes. For instance monitoring, CPU utilization, network bits, network packets, disk bytes, and disk operations are visualized in time-series graphs.

Resize

Choose to Resize instance. You can increase the size of the instance. If you would like to adjust machine type resources, the Instance must be shut down before you resize.

Auto Backup

Choose to create an Auto backup instance. You can turn this feature on and off by yourself. The instance will be backed up every 7 days at 03:00:00 by default. Backing up more than 2 copies may incur costs depending on the size and the number of backups. Please see more at Backup pricing.

Volumes

Show volume information. You choose to attach or detach volumes from the instance. When the volume is attached, you can enter the instance to configure the volume for immediate use.

Cloud Firewall

Show cloud firewall information of the instance that is in use. You can select to enable or disable Cloud Firewall. Or creating custom cloud firewall rules, including UDP, TCP, VRRP, ICMP, Ports range, and CIDR that allow you to increase instance security.

Network

Show network information of the instance, including network name, IP address, Mac address, and Cloud Firewall. And allows you to attach/detach existing networks.

Power

Offer command controls to the instance, including Stop to Shutoff Instance, Start to start instance, Soft Reboot to a Reboot instance (A controlled reboot where a VM instance is properly restarted through operating system commands.) Hard Reboot to Reboot instance (A type of reboot where a physical or virtual power button is pressed as opposed to graceful, proper shutdown of the operating system.), Rescue to enter the instance debug mode

Destroy

Delete instance button. If the instance has an External IP or Attached volume, the system will ask to delete the instance with External IP and Volume or not. You can choose to delete or save first.

History

Show the instance logs, when there is a start, stop, reboot, or migrate action.

Console

Open web console to access the instance via browser page.
