What is Burstable VPS Memory
With InMotion Hosting VPS hosting plans, you're able to use more than your allocated memory on a temporary basis. This buffer of burstable random access memory (RAM) protects your websites from downtime during traffic spikes.
For example, a VPS-1000HA-S customer has 1.5 GB allocated RAM. If he exceeds that guaranteed RAM, 4 GB of burstable RAM is available for a short amount of time. Keep in mind, the burstable RAM available also depends on activity throughout your VPS node, i.e. wccomp0-havp1. If other VPS users on your node are already using burstable RAM, it may decrease the amount available to you.
|Allocated Memory||1.5 GB||3 GB||6 GB|
|Burstable Memory||4 GB||6 GB||8 GB|
We provide a short summary of burstable memory on our VPS Hosting Sales page:
Values represent maximum available RAM accessible for a given VPS S-Class plan. During low-traffic periods when your partition requires a lower level of resources, allocated RAM may be lower (1.5GB for VPS-1000HA-S, 3GB for VPS-2000HA-S and 6GB for VPS-3000HA-S). Burstable RAM will be available during times of need for increased resources.
Note: Consistent usage over the allocated memory may require an upgrade if methods of VPS optimization are unsuccessful.
