    Frequently asked questions

    Our Stardust Instances are available in Scaleway's Learning range. For straightforward applications and small workloads, Stardust Instances are ideal. They are designed to support low-traffic web servers, internal small applications, and staging environments.

    Various instance types are priced differently and are made for various use cases. Based on their vCPU (cores), memory, storage, and bandwidth, they provide varying levels of power and performance.

    If you just want to explore and play around with personal projects, you might not require a really strong instance, in which case a Learning Instance would be ideal. Nevertheless, if you want to host a business-critical application on your instance in a live environment, you'll need the strength and dependability of a Production-Optimized Instance, which is specifically created to manage this kind of demanding workload.
