Compute Shapes

A shape is a template that determines the number of OCPUs , amount of memory, and other resources that are allocated to an instance. Compute shapes are available with AMD processors, Intel processors, and Arm-based processors.

This topic provides basic information about the shapes that are available for bare metal instances, virtual machines (VMs), and dedicated virtual machine hosts. For information about service limits, see Compute Limits. For information about protecting data on NVMe devices, see Protecting Data on NVMe Devices.

Note

Compute Shape Pricing

You can use the Cost Estimator to estimate your expected monthly project costs with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. For detailed information about billing, see Billing and Cost Management and the Oracle Compute Cloud Services section of Oracle PaaS and IaaS Universal Credits Service Descriptions.

Flexible Shapes

A flexible shape is a shape that lets you customize the number of OCPUs and the amount of memory when launching or resizing your VM. When you create a VM instance using a flexible shape, you select the number of OCPUs and the amount of memory that you need for the workloads that run on the instance. The network bandwidth and number of VNICs scale proportionately with the number of OCPUs. This flexibility lets you build VMs that match your workload, enabling you to optimize performance and minimize cost.

These are the flexible shapes:

  • VM.Standard3.Flex (Intel)
  • VM.Standard.E3.Flex (AMD)
  • VM.Standard.E4.Flex (AMD)
  • VM.Standard.A1.Flex (Arm processor from Ampere)
  • VM.DenseIO.E4.Flex (AMD)
  • VM.Optimized3.Flex (Intel)

Flexible memory is also available on flexible shapes. The amount of memory allowed is based on the number of OCPUs selected.

For standard and optimized flexible shapes, the ratio of memory to OCPUs depends on the shape.

Shape Maximum OCPUs Minimum Memory Maximum Memory
VM.Standard3.Flex 32 1 GB or a value matching the number of OCPUs, whichever is greater 64 GB per OCPU, up to 512 GB total
VM.Standard.E3.Flex 64 1 GB or a value matching the number of OCPUs, whichever is greater 64 GB per OCPU, up to 1024 GB total
VM.Standard.E4.Flex 64 1 GB or a value matching the number of OCPUs, whichever is greater 64 GB per OCPU, up to 1024 GB total
VM.Standard.A1.Flex 80 1 GB or a value matching the number of OCPUs, whichever is greater 64 GB per OCPU, up to 512 GB total
VM.Optimized3.Flex 18 1 GB or a value matching the number of OCPUs, whichever is greater 64 GB per OCPU, up to 256 GB total

For dense I/O flexible shapes, the following configurations are available:

  • 8 OCPUs, 128 GB memory
  • 16 OCPUs, 256 GB memory
  • 32 OCPUs, 512 GB memory

These resources are billed at a per-second granularity with a one-minute minimum. Optimize your costs by choosing the shape that matches your workload and by changing the shape when your workload changes. For example, you can configure the VM to maximize compute processing power by choosing a low core-to-memory ratio. Or, for applications like in-memory databases or big data processing engines, configure an instance with a high core-to-memory ratio. Modify the OCPUs and memory as your workload changes, scaling up to increase performance or scaling down to reduce costs.

Supported Regions

For a list of supported regions, see the compute instance service limits. As host capacity becomes available in additional regions, the list is updated.

Note

Capacity might be limited for A1 shapes.

Bare Metal Shapes

The following shapes are available for bare metal instances:

Network bandwidth is based on expected bandwidth for traffic within a VCN. To determine which physical NICs are active for a shape, refer to the network bandwidth specifications in the following tables. If the network bandwidth is listed as "2 x <bandwidth> Gbps," it means that both NIC 0 and NIC 1 are active.

For bare metal instances, you can optionally configure advanced BIOS settings, such as disabling simultaneous multithreading, disabling cores, or optimizing the NUMA settings.

Standard Shapes

Designed for general purpose workloads and suitable for a wide range of applications and use cases. Standard shapes provide a balance of cores, memory, and network resources. Standard shapes are available with Intel, AMD, and Arm-based processors.

These are the bare metal standard series:

  • BM.Standard3: X9-based standard compute. Processor: Intel Xeon Platinum 8358. Base frequency 2.6 GHz, max turbo frequency 3.4 GHz.
  • BM.Standard.E4: E4-based standard compute. Processor: AMD EPYC 7J13. Base frequency 2.55 GHz, max boost frequency 3.5 GHz.

C-States and Frequency Scaling

Modern CPUs transition to a power-saving state (called c-states) when the CPU is idle or underutilized. These c-states start at C0, which is the normal CPU operating mode (the CPU is 100% activated). The higher the c-state, the deeper the sleep mode into which the CPU transitions. The sleep modes work by cutting the clock signal and power from idle units inside the CPU, thereby reducing the energy use. As the CPU transitions to higher c-states (deeper sleep states), the longer it takes to wake up the units that are shut down. This is an undesirable side effect of c-states transitions, because it can slow down a demanding application.

Fortunately, the hypervisor on standard shapes manages this complexity for the end user by preventing transitions to deeper sleep states even when the CPU is underutilized. In addition, it disables c-states when it sees sustained high utilization. When c-states are disabled, the CPU operates in C0 state, where all cores are active at base frequency. Each processor manufacturer names the maximum frequency per core differently; for Intel the maximum frequency is named max turbo frequency, and for AMD it is called max boost frequency. This maximum frequency is realized by the respective CPU's built-in algorithms when the processor is running in C0 state under normal but sustained load.

Currently, the hypervisor does not allow the client operating system running in the instance to manage the c-states using kernel command line options. The client always shows the base frequency, even when the hypervisor is running the processor at the maximum frequency advertised by the processor.

1: The difference between total and usable OCPUs and memory is caused by the need to reserve OCPUs and memory for hypervisor use.

2: Because this dedicated virtual machine host shape supports hosted VMs that use a previous generation shape series, it is available by request only.

3: For Standard2, Standard.E2, and DenseIO2 shapes, billing is based on OCPUs, not memory. For all other shapes that support flexible hosted VMs, billing is based on OCPUs and memory, which are billed independently.

Previous Generation Shapes

Tip

Previous generation shapes are still fully supported. However, because the underlying hardware has reached the sustaining phase of its lifecycle, capacity in certain high-demand regions might be limited.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure periodically releases new generations of Compute shapes. The latest shapes let you take advantage of newer hardware and a better price-performance ratio. When a shape is several years old, and newer generation shapes that are suited for the same purposes are available, the old shape transitions to become a previous generation shape.

If you're using a previous generation shape, we encourage you to upgrade to a current generation shape.

Upgrading from a Previous Generation Shape

To upgrade from a previous generation shape to a current generation shape, you can do the following things:
