You can assign quota limits in CloudShare that help control the use of key resources for a subscription, project or environment. Assigning quotas can improve the utilization of shared infrastructures and reduce your costs by limiting resource consumption.
CloudShare provides optional quota control over the following types of resources:
CloudShare Resources. These resources are running on CloudShare's data centers. These resource quotas control the user hours, disk size and available RAM allotment for a CloudShare subscription or project.
External Resources. These resources are provided by a commodity cloud (e.g., GCP, AWS or Azure) that is being used by a project. External resource quotas help to control consumption using specific metrics you assign (e.g., available CPUs, CPU usage time, disk size, etc.)
Both soft limits and hard limits are available, depending on the type of resource and quota selected:
Soft Limit. When this first-tier limit is exceeded, CloudShare notifies the designated users.
Hard Limit. When this second-tier limit is exceeded, CloudShare performs an action (e.g., deletes a resource) and notifies the designated users.
