Instances serve as the operational units that execute your service’s code. When your service is deployed, its code is compiled, packaged into a container image, and then executed within an instance.

Instance Status

Instances can have several statuses during their life cycle:

  • Allocating - The instance is being allocated.
  • Running - The instance is running and ready to serve requests.
  • Terminated - The instance has been terminated.
  • Crashed - The instance has crashed.
  • Unknown - The instance is in an unknown state.
