Meet DreamCompute.

DreamCompute is the #1 open source cloud on the web. An open source cloud is immediately compatible with thousands of tools and applications, with millions of ready-made instructions and recipes to achieve your goals.

Open source is a core value at DreamHost. We incubated the scalable open source storage software Ceph, the networking software Astara and contribute to many OpenStack projects such as Neutron, Cinder, Oslo & Nova.

Ceph OpenStack

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 Knowlege Base is full of helpful articles written to make your DreamCompute experience a dream.

DreamCompute Cloud Infrastructure.

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, customers can enable a private OCI Layer 2 network. 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 a public IPv4 address. Private networking is optional for security-enhanced and complex applications.

  • Launch virtual servers in 30 seconds

    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.

Simple, intuitive controls
without sacrificing power.

DreamCompute was designed to help you achieve your goals. Whether you’re just learning the basics of web development or are an expert developer of mobile apps, you’ll find that DreamCompute is right for you.

  • Simple Web-Based Dashboard

    Create storage volumes, configure your virtual network and create and manage snapshots all within the DreamCompute Dashboard.

  • Developer Flexibility

    Programmatically deploy servers using OpenStack APIs or command-line tools. Deploy and configure your applications automatically with Ansible, Chef, Puppet or just cloud-init.

  • 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.
