Resources’ consumption statistic is aggregated over the month for each subscription summarized and invoiced. The following items are used to calculate billing:
- Provisioned vCPU per hour
- Provisioned vRAM per hour
- Provisioned Storage per hour
- Public IP per hour
- Load Balancers per hour
- Windows instances per vCPU per hour
- Outgoing traffic
A provisioned resource is one that belongs to an existing running or stopped virtual machine or in case of public IP or Load Balancer respective object if such objects exist in the project.
We support two billing models: pay-as-you-grow (PAYG) and reservation.
Each usage metric gets aggregating per hour so that if there is any usage during the hour of such resource it consider to be used. For example: 1 vCPU VM with 1GB of vRAM and 10GB of storage was running for 10 hours and after that it was deleted. This will account as 10 vCPU/h + 10 vGB/h + 100 GB/h for storage.
In this case you can prepay for desired resources and get a discount.
