Cloud Compute Servers

Standard Instances

Virtual Machines with a balanced mix of CPU cores, RAM and SSD local storage, covering a variety of use cases and allowing you to implement your architecture. From simple web hosting up to specialized Database host, from Continuous Integration server up to large Data Lakes, you can scale and combine Standard Instances to fit your application needs.

You can deploy Instances in seconds through our portal or via the API, or automate everything with orchestrators and config management tools as Terraform, Ansible or the like.

Your data is kept under strict privacy.

Storage Optimized Virtual Machines

Storage Optimized Instances

Designed to cover the needs of data-hungry applications requiring to store and access large amounts of data on a reliable local storage, Storage Optimized Instances have the same mix of CPU and RAM than our Standard Instances, but make use of larger and more capable SSD hard drives, greatly expanding the overall data capacity.

Even more interestingly they lower the cost per GB by more than 60%, with SSD volumes priced {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.volume_data) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB hour.

Features and additional services
to build up your architecture

Local Storage icon

Local Storage

All Instances come with attached SSD local storage. Minimum size, maximum size, and pricing depend on the Instance Family and Type. You can refer to the tables above for details about minimum and maximum sizing.

Local SSD storage for Standard Instances and GPU Instances is billed {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.volume) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB hour ({{ monthly_price(prices.opencompute.volume) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB month).

Local SSD storage for Storage Optimized Instances is billed {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.volume_data) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB hour ({{ monthly_price(prices.opencompute.volume_data) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB month).

Storage Optimized Instances reach bigger capacities by using a lower grade SSD disk. During extensive tests, the maximum performance penalty observed compared to other Instance families is 30%, depending on the specific workload.

Bandwidth icon

Bandwidth

Bandwidth is uncapped: there are no imposed limitations, meaning you can take advantage of up to 10Gb for your data transfer.

A free tier of up to 1.42 GB / hr is granted per-Instance (equivalent to 1 TB / mo per-Instance).
Outbound traffic to Internet is billed {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.traffic) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB for the part exceding the free tier.

Inbound and internal traffic is always free:

  • For all inbound traffic from Internet
  • Between all Exoscale Zones
  • Between all Exoscale instances

Elastic IP icon

Elastic IP

While every instance comes with an included and free fo charge public IPv4 address and IPv6 address, you can reserve extra IPv4 addresses that you can remap to one or more instances in your account.

Elastic IP are billed {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.eip_address) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / hour ({{ monthly_price(prices.opencompute.eip_address) | number:0 }} {{ currency }} / month) and come with optional and free of charge transparent management and healtch check functionalities.

Snapshots icon

Snapshots

Snapshots are billed according to the size of their source Instance volume size: a snapshot of a 100GB Instance’s volume counts for 100GB. They are copied outside the compute infrastructure to secondary storage within the same zone providing a solid data protection solution.

Snapshots are billed {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.snapshot) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / hour ({{ monthly_price(prices.opencompute.snapshot) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / month).

Custom Templates icon

Custom Templates

You have the opportunity to upload and register your custom-made Custom Template on Exoscale. Templates are billed based on their virtual disk size, with a minimum size of 10GB, and are registered per-Zone.

Custom Templates are billed {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.template) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / GB / hour.

This means a Custom Template with a virtual size of 10 GB registered in two Zones costs {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.template) * 10 * 2 | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / hour (10 GB * {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.template) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} * 2 Zones), corresponding to {{ hourly_price(prices.opencompute.template) * 10 * 2 * 720 | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / month.

Licences icon

Licences

Most of the officially supported templates are free of charge.

Windows instances must account for an extra licence cost of {{ hourly_price(prices.licenses.license_win) | number:5 }} {{ currency }} / hour.

How it works in detail

How are services billed?

Our services are billed by the exact time (up to the second) or unit of metering you consume. You credit status is updated every hour. Monthly prices shown on this page are calculated on a standard 720 hours month, without interruption, and are rounded. Your account can be setup in either CHF, EUR or USD depending on your initial legal residence. For a precise and detailed view of our prices have a look at our official pricelist (pdf).

How does bandwidth billing work?

Bandwidth is billed hourly and takes into account the number of virtual machines running during the last one-hour period. Effectively, there are 1.42 GB of free output bandwidth per instance. If an instance doesn’t use its free tier, it is reported on other running instances of the same organization. So, with 5 instances running during the last hour, there are 7.1 GB of free output bandwidth. The exceeding bandwidth is billed.

How does snapshot billing work?

Snapshots are billed according to the size of their volume: a snapshot of a 100GB volume counts for 100GB. Snapshots are copied outside the compute infrastructure to secondary storage within the same zone, providing a solid data protection solution.

Are powered-off machines billed?

Powered down virtual machines will only be charged for resources still in use. Therefore, the local storage volume attached to your instance will still be charged. During trial period, computing resources are charged even when the machines are stopped. This behavior is converted to the default behavior on first payment.

Which payments methods are accepted?

We accept various secured payment methods, major Credit Cards such as VISA or MasterCard, Postfinance cards and PayPal. Post-paid invoicing allows you to pay by Bank Transfer too.

It is possible to get post-paid invoicing?

Yes, we offer a monthly post-paid billing option. It is available upon request and is activated after a case by case examination, depending on volume and payment history. Post-paid Invoicing is also supported in EUR and USD currencies.

Can I scale RAM and CPU?

Through the interface you will be able to choose between the predefined instances types you see in this page. You can scale up and down to a lower or higher type when you want. You can find more details on how to do so in our scaling documentation.

It is possible to have a bigger volume size?

When creating your instance via the web interface, a range of fixed disk sizes will be suggested, corresponding to the instance’s type you wish to start. Via the API or CLI you can choose the initial size from 10GB onwards. Once your instance started you can expand the disk size as you like by increments of 1GB or greater. The lower and upper limits are specified in the pricing tables. You can find more details on how to scale your disk size in our documentation.

How are subscriptions billed?

Subscriptions are services with a recurring billing, e.g., DNS. They are charged monthly and are due for full months. If you start a subscription on the 10th of a given month, you will be charged a full month, and the same when you cancel your subscription before the end of the month.
