Why can't I build a boot disk larger than 50GB or more than 1GB swap?

On a cloud platform, SWAP is much less effective or useful than on a traditional server. Additionaly significant Swap usage causes massive IO, which can impact other users, which may result in the resize of your swap or its removal without notice.

Thus, the maximum SWAP you can add to any server is 1GB.

To ensure the platform can complete server snapshots for you in a reasonable timeframe, the maximum size for a primary or boot disk is 50GB.

For volume storage, we recommend using our high performance NAS options - which also cost a lot less than primary SSD storage! You can also mount secondary or additional SSD drives should you need very high performance.
