All DreamCompute plans include:

  • Simple Web-Based Dashboard

    The DreamCompute Dashboard makes launching a server easy; and it boots in as little as 40 seconds! Create storage volumes, configure your virtual network and create and manage snapshots all within the DreamCompute Dashboard.

  • True Tenant Network Isolation

    With VMWare's NSX and DreamHost's Akanda, 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.

  • 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.

  • Rock Solid Security

    To protect against password hacking, all DreamCompute servers use SSH key authentication by default. Also, with isolated Layer 2 networks, you’ll get your own physical private network. Using OpenStack’s security groups, you’ll be able to create server-level firewalls.

  • Ceph-Based 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • IPv6 Support

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

  • 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.
