Fast Time

Fast Time Logo

The Fast Time feature enables dynamically increasing virtual machine resources. Much like upgrading your local machine, Fast Time upgrades your container with up to 96 CPU cores and a maximum of 16 GB of RAM. Additionally, Fast Time allocates additional network bandwidth and disk I/O increasing responsiveness. The feature is especially useful for CPU intensive tasks like compiling code, downloading and installing dependencies, and using lots of VSCode extensions.

  • 96 CPU Cores
  • 16 GB Ram
  • Increased Network Bandwidth
  • Increased Disk I/O

How it works

An hour of Fast Time is equal to one CPU core at 100% use for one hour
