When we choose ECS, do we often see service providers providing lightweight ECS, ECS, and even GPU servers. The names of these products must be related to the industry fields for which the products are applicable. For ordinary users, how do we choose lightweight servers and ECS?
The difference between lightweight ECS and ECS can be seen from the above comparison from Tencent cloud service providers.
1. Applicable scenario users
Lightweight ECS is suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises and developers, and there are many entry user projects. For example, our personal website uses more. It has fixed traffic and large bandwidth to meet basic small and medium-sized businesses. ECS has a large elastic configuration that can be upgraded and downgraded. Especially for high-end configurations, ECS is more cost-effective than lightweight servers.
2. Application support mode
The lightweight ECS has one click configuration application environment support, while the ECS requires our users to configure independently. For example, the lightweight server has a built-in LNMP, pagoda panel environment, and many commonly used one button installation environment software support, which is suitable for novice and entry-level users to quickly configure the environment.
3. Network billing mode
Lightweight servers generally adopt the mode of high bandwidth traffic packets, while ECS generally adopts a fixed bandwidth that does not limit traffic. Or you can choose the traffic billing method.
4. Flexible expansion support
The extension support of ECS is much better than that of lightweight servers. For example, we can upgrade the hard disk, CPU, network bandwidth and other configurations separately as needed. The lightweight server cannot be upgraded separately.
