Billing and resource utilization metering

The Metalcloud’s pricing depends on a number of factors and the services used. Depending on the contract service it can be similar to a public cloud or similar to a dedicated servers provider.

Make sure you check the pricing page on our website for offers that might help you get over the complexity if you’re just getting started.

 

Instance pricing

Metalcloud bare metal instances can be consumed both as on-demand and as reserved resources.

 

On-demand bare metal servers (instances) pricing

Metalcloud bare metal instances allow for on-demand consumption. They can be provisioned and de-provisioned at any time by the customer and paid only for the duration of the utilization.

If no reservations or packages are applied instances are priced depending on their utilization. Utilization is metered on a per second basis but the prices are displayed per hour. Metering starts from the moment a server is allocated to an instance and is stopped when it is stopped or deleted. The time the instance was allocated to a user (“ACTIVE” state) is charged at the end of the billing cycle typically 1 month.
 

Reservation pricing

Reservations will override on-demand prices for matching instances and are up to 40% lower than on-demand pricing making them suitable for more predictable scenarios. These prices are for one month of reservation and a contract duration of one year.

How reservations work

The actual utilization of instances can still be used on-demand, the same reservation can cover two separate instances during a month.

../_images/pricing1.svg

Reservations are invoiced at the beginning of the utilization period.

 

Storage pricing

For a typical 720 hour month the pricing of the various storage options is as follows:

Storage type

EUR

GBP

SSD-backed iSCSI Drives

€0.10/GB

£0.08/GB

HDD-backed iSCSI Drives

€0.04/GB

£0.04/GB

Data Lake

€0.03/GB

£0.02/GB

If the duration is smaller than 720 hours the charge will be proportional. SharedDrive prices are the same as regular Drives.

 

IP space pricing

Pricing per 1 ip, used for a typical 720 hours month:

IP Address type

EUR

GBP

IPv4 address

€2.43/ip

£2.13/ip

IPv6 address

€0.00/ip

£0.00/ip

IPv4 addresses are charged individually but are allocated in contiguous blocks to infrastructures:

  • /30 (2 usable ip address)
  • /29 (6 usable ip address)
  • /28 (14 usable ip address)
  • /27 (30 usable ip address)

If additional instances are added to the infrastructure these subnets will grow if the next contiguous ip space is unallocated. Otherwise a separate block will be allocated.

Data Transfer prices

Prices for data transfer depend on the destination of the transfer.
