Jelastic offers truly flexible and elastic pricing for developers through a hosting service provider. Jelastic pricing is based upon resource usage so that developers pay only for resources in use by applications. Jelastic pricing model is based on units of resource called cloudlets. Each cloudlet represents approximately 400MHz of CPU and 128 MiB of RAM. You can set a minimum number of cloudlets to be reserved for your application and also set maximum limits should application demand increase. If you simply want a fixed bill every month, you can set a fixed number of cloudlets for your environment. Billing is totally flexible and dynamic and you can change your limits at any time (or even hibernate your app). You can find your exact Jelastic pricing by going to your hoster pricing page. More about Jelastic pricing - Comparison table of Jelastic Hosting Providers - jelastic.cloudWindows Azure Storage utilization is calculated based on your average usage during a billing period of blob, table, queue, and Windows Azure Drive storage. For example, if you consistently utilized 10GB of storage for the first half of the month and none for the second half of the month, you would be billed for your average usage of 5GB of storage.starting 12€/year mutual 120€/year dedicatedsimple resource-based pricing structure:€/an 1cpu/1GB RAM/10GB disk Graphical Data Center Designer (DCD) Use of API Separate virtual data center with free networking options As many firewalls as required As many load balancers as required SysAdmin support$149/month (no contract)

In Shelly Cloud you are paying for virtual servers, where you can run many services (such as application servers and database servers) without additional costs for them.

There two kinds of virtual servers:

  • small virtual server (with 1 virtual core with 1GB of RAM)
  • * large virtual server (with 2 virtual cores with 2GB of RAM)

In both cases you pay for an hour of the server running. For small virtual server €0.0287 per hour (around €21/month) and €0.0548 per hour (around €41/month) for large one.

Additional costs are for services such as storage, network traffic and private ip address (for SSL domains):

  • Database storage: €0.60 for each exceeded GB
  • Filesystem storage: €0.20 for each exceeded GB
  • Network traffic: €10 for each exceeded TB
  • Private IP: €10

Shelly Cloud gives €20 free credit on the first cloud.
