“CPU Core” means a logical or virtual unit of a CPU that can execute computer programs. We calculate CPU cores based on the environment in which the Software operates. In a physical (Hyperthread) or virtual (vCPU) environment, Yugabyte recognizes logical cores as a unit of compute for licensing:

  • “Hyperthread” is a technology by which a single physical core is split across 2 logical cores.
  • In a virtualized or hypervisor (VM) computing environment, a CPU Core may be presented as one or more vCPUs. In a public cloud computing environment, a CPU Core is Hyperthreaded and may be presented as one or more vCPUs (“vCPU” means a unit of virtual processing power configured to a VM). This may be named differently by the public cloud vendors, e.g., Amazon Web Services defines CPU Core as “vCPU”, Microsoft Azure defines CPU Core as “Core” or “vCPU”, Google Cloud Platform defines CPU Core as “Virtual CPU”, and Heroku defines CPU Core as “Compute”. Yugabyte recognizes vCPUs as a unit of compute for licensing.


“Virtual Machine (“VM”)” means a software container that can run its own operating system and execute applications, just as a physical computer does.
