New generation public cloud pricing model based on real consumption, not on server size
Usage-based resource allocation and pricing
Every container hosted with Virtuozzo Application Platform is divided into granular units – cloudlets (128MiB of RAM and 400MHz of CPU). The system makes hourly measures of how many cloudlets inside each container are consumed and requests the payment only for these used resources.
You can set up a maximum Scaling Limit for each container, so the resources will always be available in case of load spikes or other consumption changes.
No matter how high the Scaling Limit – the payment will be only based on real usage. Additional resources will be waiting in the pool for the application to request them, and it is totally free of charge.
This solves the right-sizing problem available with VM-based cloud installations, as with Jelastic container-based infrastructure, you don’t need to guess how much resource to allocate for a high performance during an average load or in case of load spikes.
Additional resources and services
In addition to RAM and CPU, the application can consume the following paid resources
External IP address for direct connections between Internet and specific servers within environment
Paid licences for commercial software stacks as LiteSpeed and additional services, for example, for built-in CDN
Traffic between your environment and the Internet. Internal traffic between environments is free
Disk space is charged hourly per GB of disk space used in your environment
