New Generation Public Cloud Pricing Model
Based on Real Consumption, Not on Server Size

Pay As You Use

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.

Usage-Based Resource Allocation and Pricing

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

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 Jelastic 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.

“In the previous solution, we always had to choose the exact size of the environment when setting it up, and we were charged based on the fixed size. Nowadays we just need to choose the boundary conditions, and the invoicing is based on the actual usage of resources.”

“Pricing model used in Jelastic is convenient for us, as well as more transparent and fair compared to paying algorithms from other cloud vendors like AWS or similar.”
