How to deploy a VSCode Server?

NOTE: Spheron Compute offers the flexibility to create custom configurations for your instance.

Spheron allows you to deploy a compute instance pre-installed with VSCode Server, all set up and ready to use. To deploy a VSCode Server:

  1. Upon logging in, you'll be directed to the Create Organization page, where you can give your organization name and choose Avatar. Ensure the "Compute" option is selected from the drop-down menu of the "Start With" option. Click 'Continue'.
  2. Next, you'll be taken to a new page. Click the "Create New Projects" button. Add 'Project Title' And 'Project Description' and Click 'Create'.
  3. Choose "Compute" to use CPU-based instances for running containers.
  4. Choose your desired Compute Type option under Compute Type.
  5. Click "Start from Marketplace App" and Select "VSCode Server" from the marketplace.
  6. When selecting a region, we recommend starting by trying to deploy in a region closer to you. If you encounter any issues, you can consider switching to other regions. Choosing a region closer to you can improve performance and reduce latency. Click here to know more.

  8. If you want you can Select the instance plan that suits your needs. You can use the "Create Custom Plan" toggle to create custom plans for your CPU based instance.

  10. Next, Add "Token Id" and "Listen Address" under Template Configuration. Spheron has made it easy and auto-filled the configuration options. You can add advanced configuration if required. Click here to know more.
