New Generation Public Cloud Pricing Model
Based on Real Consumption, Not on Server Size
Usage-Based Resource Allocation and Pricing
Every container hosted with Jelastic PaaS is divided into granular units – cloudlets (128MiB of RAM and 400MHz of CPU). The system makes hourly measures 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 be always 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. The rest of allocated resources will be just 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 resources to allocate for a high performance during an average load and in case of load spikes.
Additional Resources and Services
In addition to RAM and CPU, the application can consume the following paid resources:
- Public IP: External IP address for direct connections between Internet and specific servers within environment
- External Traffic: Traffic between your environment and the Internet. Internal traffic between environments is free
- Disk Space: Disk space is charged hourly per GB of disk space used in your environment
- Commercial Add-ons: Paid licences for commercial software stacks as LiteSpeed and additional services, for example for built-in CDN
Tracking Cloud Hosting Expenses
After registration, you’ll get a free trial and during this period you can track the actual consumption of the application and the total cost
Within the Bitmana dashboard you can estimate the price while creating an environment, check Statistics for Disk, RAM, CPU and Network Bandwidth, as well as review the charges applied for consumed resources.
Keeping an eye on the amount of resources your application consumes allows you to plan your budget and control an expenditure of funds.
