Technical details

  • A choice of 1 or 2 virtual machines (VM’s) on the brightsolid cloud through an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) model or managed infrastructure-as-a-service model.
  • In a managed IaaS model brightsolid takes the responsibility for deploying the virtual machine, managing the operating system, including the patching and monitoring. Anything else installed onto the virtual machine is managed by the customer. In a purely IaaS model, the customer manages the entire virtual machine.
  • Virtual Machine – 2 Max per customer, CPU – Max of 2 Cores per VM, Max of 8GB RAM per VM, Max of 100GB Storage per VM
  • Both models have a remote access control portal that enables full administrator rights for the virtual machine

If you would like 2 VM’s, each with a different operating system, this can be discussed with a member of our team after registering through the form.
