SQL Server Instance Type


  • The specification code is related to CPU and the memory only. Therefore, the instances of the same CPU and memory specification shall have the same specification code
  • SQL Server Enterprise Version in Beijing Region supports for both local SSD and NVME, while other regions only support local SSD Storage for the time being

Instance Type

  • General Type: the specification of CPU memory ratio of 1:4, suitable for most database customer scenarios. General specification supports all SQL Server versions
  • Memory Optimized: the specification of CPU memory ratio of 1:8, suitable for customer scenarios requiring large memory. The memory optimized specification is available only in Beijing Region for the time being, and supports SQL Server Enterprise Version only
