What Is Elastic Cloud Server?

What Is Elastic Cloud Server?


An Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) is a scalable, on-demand compute server consisting of CPUs, memory, and Elastic Volume Service (EVS) disks. The ECS service works with the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and Cloud Server Backup Service (CSBS) services to provide an efficient, reliable, and secure computing environment for your data and applications. An ECS uses compute resources provisioned using virtualization technology.

When creating an ECS, you can customize the number of CPUs, memory size, image type, and login authentication mode. After an ECS is created, you can use it the same way you use your local computer or a physical server.


The ECS service allows you to:

  • Customize the flavor, image, network, disks, authentication mode, and number of ECSs when creating ECSs.
  • Expand the capacity of EVS disks attached to an ECS, attach EVS disks to an ECS, detach EVS disks from an ECS, and use shared EVS disks.
  • Change the ECS operating system (OS) and reinstall the ECS OS.
  • Bind an elastic IP address (EIP) to and unbind an EIP from an ECS. This feature is supported only in Region Type I and II scenarios.
  • Manage the life cycle of an ECS, including starting, stopping, restarting, and deleting an ECS.
