Project-level resource limits

Set and manage quotas on a per-project or per-tenant basis. Ensure that a single project or tenant doesn't consume more resources than designated.

Hardware and software co-design

Full-rack fault management means that workloads are migrated before emerging problems become critical ones.

Issues icon

Oxide removes failing components from service to protect instances.

Router icon

Operators initiate live-migration of instances to replace failed components.
