With Storage VPS, scaling up and down is very simple. This change happens without interruption so you could enjoy downtime free upgrades or downgrade any time!
Are the resources dedicated to my VPS?
When you purchase a VPS from our company, we ensure that your system is always operating at full capacity. This means all of the memory and disk space on the node are dedicated to hosting your server alone - no sharing with other users. However, because CPU power must be shared across many servers in one physical machine due to how virtualization works (so as not waste any resources), it provides an even better value for money than if this was guaranteed fully regardless of occupancy/usage!

You could use Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, SUSE, SLES with your Storage VPS.
