What's the difference between Tencent Cloud lightweight application server and CVM cloud server

Yesterday Lao Zuo shared“ Tencent Cloud's global cloud server activity reappearance - including CVM cloud servers and lightweight servers in the United States/Hong Kong "In the activity article, we can see that Tencent Cloud has offered traditional CVM cloud servers and lightweight application servers in the global cloud promotion activities. Do we see that lightweight servers have more advantages in terms of price?

Because when we choose CVM ECS all the year round, the default bandwidth is 1M, and many of us have mentioned that 1M bandwidth is basically incapable of doing anything, which is not the case in fact. For example, Lao Zuo“ To solve the problem of the slow speed of building a website with 1M bandwidth of ECS, priority should be given to optimizing the website speed before upgrading the configuration "It was mentioned in the article that it can solve the speed problem of 1M bandwidth. In fact, many webmasters with 1M bandwidth operate well.

In this article, we solve the problem of which to choose between lightweight servers and cloud servers, which was put forward by a netizen yesterday.

First, the difference between official labels

Here we can take a look at the official differences.

 What is the difference between Tencent Cloud lightweight application server and CVM cloud server

We can see the official comparison. From the official comparison project, we can see that the lightweight application server is really perfect, and all kinds of projects are successful. Is it really like this?

Second, the advantages of lightweight application servers

From the above comparison, we can see that the lightweight application server is really much better than the CVM ECS. Does that mean it must be really good? This is definitely not the case. Let's take a look at the CVM ECS, and we will definitely mention some advantages. However, there are also advantages in lightweight servers. For example, the bandwidth is relatively large. We see that the bandwidth is 30M at the beginning, which is not available in ECS, but only 1M. In terms of traffic, we should see the difference. Although the bandwidth is large, the traffic is limited.

If we use more traffic, we need to see what will happen if we exceed the traffic when we lightweight the server. If you need to upgrade the configuration, or if it exceeds the standard, you need to charge extra.

The feature of lightweight servers is that they can install built-in applications with one click, while ECS does not, and we need to install them ourselves.

Third, what are the characteristics of ECS

For ECS, we can use the elastic IP. For example, if there is an IP problem, we can change the IP address or use the elastic IP address. The lightweight server has only one fixed IP address. At the same time, ECS can be configured to upgrade the required hardware, while lightweight servers can't be upgraded separately. You have to upgrade the entire configuration package.

If we are an ordinary personal project, Laozuo suggests choosing a lightweight server instead. For example, our traffic is not very large, but the bandwidth is large, and the speed must be obvious. If we want to upgrade a single piece of hardware, we can choose CVM ECS, which can be highly scalable.
