Compute Shapes

A shape is a template that determines the number of CPUs, amount of memory, and other resources allocated to a newly created instance. The following lists provide basic information about the available bare metal and VM shapes.

Bare Metal Shapes

Shape Instance Type OCPU Memory (GB) Local Disk (TB) Network Bandwidth1 Max VNICs Total: Linux Max VNICS Total: Windows
BM.Standard1.36 Standard compute capacity 36 256 Block storage only 10 Gbps 36 1
BM.DenseIO1.36 Dense I/O compute capacity 36 512 28.8TB NVMe SSD 10 Gbps 36 1
BM.Standard2.52 X7-based standard compute capacity 52 768 Block storage only 2 x 25 Gbps

52 total (26 per physical NIC)

27 total (1 on the first physical NIC, 26 on the second)
BM.DenseO2.52 X7-based dense I/O compute capacity 52 768 51.2TB NVMe SSD 2 x 25 Gbps 52 total (26 per physical NIC) 27 total (1 on the first physical NIC, 26 on the second)
BM.GPU2.2 X7-based GPU: 2 P100 NVIDIA GPUs 28 192 Block storage only 2 x 25 Gbps 28 total (14 per physical NIC) 15 total (1 on the first physical NIC, 14 on the second)

1: Network bandwidth is based on expected bandwidth for traffic within a VCN.
