Compute Resources Settings

Compute resources are a critical part of the cloud. You should only change Compute resource settings if you are confident about what settings you want to change and how to configure them.

Compute resources have types which they inherit from the zone to which they belong. These types also define the type of resources (data stores, networks and backup servers) that can be associated with a compute zone or compute resource. Compute resources can be later moved from one compute zone to another, but the zones should be of the same type. For more information refer to Zone Types. The table below demonstrates the available compute zone types for different compute resources:
