Cloud powered by VMware Billing and Payment
Before creating a virtual data center (vDC), you must top up your Cloud powered by VMware Balance.
Under the pay-as-you-go model, prices are calculated as follows:
- The total number of each virtual machine component (vCPU, RAM, disk size) is added up. For disabled VMs, only disk space is counted.
- Once an hour, the total maximum value for each resource is multiplied by the resource's hourly price.
- The resulting value is deducted from the Cloud powered by VMware balance.
Resource costs can be found on our site.
For a monthly estimate, try our price calculator.
To avoid unexpected service suspensions, set up low-balance alerts.
The following additional services are available:
- Direct connected /28 subnet
- Direct connected /29 subnet
- Routable IP address
- Edge Gateway Compact
- Edge Gateway Large
- Edge Gateway Quad Large
- Edge Gateway X-Large
- Windows Server (1 core)
Hourly charges are made based on the number of cores and only apply to enabled Windows-based virtual machines.
Please note that if a machine is turned on for only 10 minutes in 1 hour, you will be charged for a full hour.
Users are provided 3 TB of monthly Internet traffic for free. Additional traffic is paid based on the volume consumed.
IP addresses may be assigned individually or as a subnet. When creating a vDC, an Edge Gateway Compact is automatically created and assigned 1 IP address.
LAN to Physical Infrastructure
The service lets you connect vDC networks to a local network with dedicated servers, equipment in colocation, and the VPC.
vAPP Template Billing
When a client creates a vApp template, they are charged for the total VM disk space of the template.
