Bare Metal Billing

Bare metal instances, bandwidth, data transfer, elastic IPs, CIDR blocks are billable; virtual private clouds (VPCs) and subnets are free for use.

Prerequisites

Note
The actual price varies in different locations and zones, therefore the price shown on the order page shall prevail.

Bare Metal Instance

The billing method of bare metal instances is Subscription. You pay for a bare metal instance including:
  • Hardware configurations: Operating systems, HDD/SAS/SATA, RAID, etc.
  • A piece of public IPv4
  • A piece of public IPv6 (subject to zones)
  • Included bandwidth (10 M/30 M/50 M/100 M subject to zones)
Note
Pay-as-you-go instances are available for VIP customers now.
Please contact us if you need.

Network

Note
The following network billing methods are supported for now. If you need others, please contact our sales support.

Flat Rate Bandwidth

You can set a bandwidth cap for your stable business with little bursty traffic, and use unlimited data transfer. You will be charged based on the bandwidth size.
Note
You can pay your bandwidth afterward together with the instance by hour.
Please contact us if you need.

Burstable 95th

You use first and pay afterward by month. If you have a base commit rate, you need to pay that part first. The system samples the peak bandwidth of each instance monthly, and discard the top 5% of the samples. The highest value left is taken as your actual bandwidth usage. Instances with pricing model of burstable 95th will be billed as follows:
Monthly payment = Resource payment (Monthly price of computing + storage) + Bandwidth payment (95th percentile bandwidth (Mbps) × Monthly price per Mbps × Effective factor).
Note
Effective factor = Number of valid days in a calendar month/Total number of days in the calendar month.
There are 3 kinds of burstable 95th billing models:
Billing Model
Billing Item
Description
Burstable 95th volume pricing
95th percentile bandwidth usage of one instance
The price of all the bandwidth units you have used is within the set price range.
Burstable 95th tiered pricing
95th percentile bandwidth usage of one instance
The price per bandwidth unit you have used is within a particular price range. Once you fill up one tier you move to the next.
Burstable 95th with commitment
95th percentile bandwidth usage of one instance
You pay the bandwidth commitment first and usage exceeded the base commit rate will be paid afterward by Mbps.
Note
The minimum commitment for each instance is 200 Mbps.

Aggregated Burstable 95th

You use first and pay afterward by month. If you have a base commit rate, you need to pay that part first. The system samples the peak bandwidth of all your instances in one bandwidth cluster each month, and discard the top 5% of the samples. The highest value left is taken as the billable bandwidth.
There are 3 kinds of aggregated burstable 95th billing models:
Billing Model
Billing Item
Description
Burstable 95th volume pricing
95th percentile bandwidth usage of all instances in one bandwidth cluster
The price of all the bandwidth units you have used is within the set price range.
Burstable 95th tiered pricing
95th percentile bandwidth usage of all instances in one bandwidth cluster
The price per bandwidth unit you have used is within a particular price range. Once you fill up one tier you move to the next.
Burstable 95th with commitment
95th percentile bandwidth usage of all instances in one bandwidth cluster
You pay the bandwidth commitment first and usage exceeded the base commit rate will be post paid by Mbps. Note The minimum commitment for each instance is 300 Mbps.
Note
  • All your instances in one bandwidth cluster will be billed together with no bandwidth commitment.
  • You will not be billed for a bandwidth cluster if no instances are added in.

Data Transfer

You can purchase subscription data transfer package or pay-as-you-go data transfer. You are billed by the egress data transfer.
  • Subscription The data transfer in the subscription package is only valid within a calendar month, and data consumed beyond the package will be paid per GB by hour afterward.
  • Pay-as-you-go You will be charged per GB by hour. If any overdue payment exists, service and billing will stop and all data will be stored for 24 hours.
For both subscription and pay-as-you-go instances, data transfer usage displayed in the instance list is calculated on a calendar month basis since creation. A calendar month is the the period from a day of one month to the corresponding day of the next month if such exists or if not to the last day of the next month (as from January 3 to February 3 or from January 31 to February 29).
Data Transfer Usage
Here are examples.
  • Assume you purchase a 3-month subscription instance on May 15. It is billed by data transfer with a package of 5 TB every month. Then 0.00TB / 5.00TB here represents the used and total data transfer from May 15 to May 31st. The data will be reset from Jun. 1st and calculated again for the following calendar month, that is from Jun. 1st to Jun. 30.
  • Assume you purchase a pay-as-you-go instance on May 15. It is billed by data transfer per GB by hour. Then 0.00TB here represents the used data transfer from May 15 to May 31st. The data will be reset from Jun. 1st and calculated again for the following calendar month, that is from Jun. 1st to Jun. 30.
Note
You are highly recommended to buy a sufficient data transfer package according to your actual business.
