1) Speed (CPU Power)
Percentage of CPU power allocated. Eg. suppose one CPU core = 2GHz, with CPU power of 50% means you can use up to 1GHz CPU power to run your website. 100% means full one core or 2GHz. If your CPU usage go beyond the limit, your website will slow down or stop working. HOWEVER, other tenant's website remain normal.
2) Physical / Virtual Memory
Amount of memory that allocated for each account. If your memory usage go beyond the limit, visitors to your site will receive error 500 or error 503 message in their web browser.
