Local Storage icon

Local Storage

All Instances come with an attached SSD local storage volume. 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 Storage is billed per GB / hour.

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

Traffic icon

Traffic

Traffic is billed per GB with a free tier of up to 1.42 GB / hr granted per-Instance (equivalent to 1 TB / mo per-Instance).

Inbound and internal traffic is always free:

  • For all inbound traffic from Internet
  • Between all Exoscale Zones
  • Between all Exoscale instances, SOS and DBaaS

Learn more about how Traffic is billed

Elastic IP icon

Elastic IP

While every instance comes with an included and free of 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 is billed per hour comes with optional and free of charge transparent management and health check functionalities.

Explore all features in our Elastic IP documentation.

Network Load Balancer icon

Network Load Balancer

An L4 load balancer billed per hour that can smartly distribute incoming traffic to the members of one or more Instance Pool.

Each NLB includes up to 10 Services, and free of charge health check functionality. There is no price per request or extra traffic billing for using an NLB, but traffic is billed normally.

Explore all features in our NLB documentation.

Snapshots icon

Snapshots

Snapshots are billed per GB / hour 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.

Explore all features in our Snapshots documentation.

Custom Templates icon

Custom Templates

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

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. Your account can be setup in either CHF, EUR or USD depending on your initial legal residence.

How does traffic billing work?

Traffic 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 traffic 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 traffic. The exceeding traffic is billed.

traffic bandwidth schema

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 and software licenses attached to your instance will still be charged. During the 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.

Is a volume discount available?

Yes, a volume discount is available for larger workloads with a 12-months commitment. The volume discount is valid for all compute related products in all zones. Find more details in our Volume Discount overview.
