Pricing Model



Cost Model

  • You pay for a pre-allocation of resources giving more predictable  billing.
  • Organizations are charged for the capacity allocated to their Virtual Data Centre.
  • You can expand/contract your resources at any time by submitting a service request.
  • Lowering the guarantee of resources allows for more virtual machines to fit into the pre-allocation, but this may impact the ability for the virtual machines to get the resources it asks for.
