Fast Time

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

  • Check your Fast Time balance from the dashboard
  • In Coder’s server-powered VSCode, look for the bolt Fast Time logo and click it

You can also:

  • Purchase Fast Time from the store
