Yes, each disk tier has its own set of IOPS limiting rules.

What types of applications can be run in the cloud?

Geetoo Cloud Compute is suitable for most applications and there are no technological barriers. In some cases, however, the license agreement does not allow you to run in a shared environment. If the software license terms exclude operation in the cloud environment, the solution is to use the Geetoo Private Cloud service, which has no such restrictions.

Can I use my own software licenses in Geetoo Cloud Compute?

In our environment, we do not restrict the software we use, as long as it is obtained legally. Therefore, it is certainly possible to use your own licenses of any software, as long as the licensing terms of the software vendor allow you to use the licenses in a shared environment. Open-source solutions usually do not impose any limits on cloud use and are not restricted by us in any way. Some software manufacturers, such as. Microsoft and Oracle, provide special cloud licenses for shared environments and do not wish on-premise products to run in any other environment. Software manufacturers impose their own terms and conditions on end users of software (EULAs) and these are often not easy to understand. Therefore, if you are unsure about your licenses, our licensing specialist will be happy to advise you.
