Placement Groups

Placement Groups are used to influence the distribution of interdependent virtual servers in our data centers. The distribution of the different instances within a group is based on a pattern specified in the type. By enforcing certain rules on the placement of instances within our infrastructure, availability can be influenced in a way that fits your needs best.

In spread Placement Groups, all virtual servers are running on different physical servers. This decreases the probability that some instances might fail together.
