The Easiest Cloud Hosting
You've Ever Used

DreamCompute was designed with usability in mind. We believe you shouldn't need to choose simple or flexible so we've designed DreamCompute to give you both.

  • Simple Web-Based Dashboard

    Create storage volumes, configure your virtual network and create and manage snapshots all within the DreamCompute Dashboard. And it boots in less than 60 seconds!

  • Developer Flexibility

    Programmatically deploy servers using OpenStack APIs or command-line tools. Choose your own Linux distro - Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora or upload your own.

  • High Scalability

    Scale your apps both vertically and horizontally by creating servers with additional resources (memory, vCPU, disk volume, etc) or spin up additional servers to handle similar or different infrastructure workloads.

With Servers You Can Trust To Perform

There's no point in a server that isn't reliable, and that's why DreamHost takes support and security very serious.

Rock Solid Security

All DreamCompute servers use SSH key authentication by default to protect against password hacking. You'll also get your own physical private network with isolated Layer 2 networks and be able to create server-level firewalls using OpenStack's security groups.

Redundant Storage

Rest easy as every piece of data stored in the Ceph storage cluster is replicated a total of three times. If something should fail, the Ceph cluster springs into action to automatically self-heal, ensuring that the proper number of replicas exist.

And 24/7 Expert Support

DreamHost’s best cloud minds are available 24/7 via live chat, email and Twitter. In addition, the DreamCompute Wiki is full of helpful articles written to make your DreamCompute experience a dream.


Our cloud servers are top of the line with all the bells and whistles you'd expect.

  • True Tenant Network Isolation

    With OpenStack Astara, incubated in the DreamHost labs, each tenant receives their own OCI Layer 2 switch. Combined network virtualization technology with OpenStack's Neutron API means you'll have full control of your network from L2-L7, with isolation.

  • IPv4 and IPv6 Included

    Every server in DreamCompute is assigned an IPv6 address along with its own private IPv4 address.

  • Lightning Fast Boots

    Leveraging Ceph's copy-on-write technology, servers boot from thin-provisioned copies of OS images. That means efficient storage utilization and lightning fast boots.

You deserve the best open source cloud.

Open source lies at the core of DreamHost. We want to help transition developers from closed, proprietary systems to a cloud platform built upon a foundation of transparency and open source. That's why we incubated the scalable Open Source storage software Ceph and contribute to many OpenStack projects such as Neutron, Cinder, Oslo & Nova.
