Pricing for Compute Cloud

To calculate the cost of using the service, use the calculator or see the prices on this page.

Note

Currency of Service rates (prices) depends on the company you made a contract with:

  • prices in US dollars are applicable to customers of Yandex Services AG,
  • prices in Russian roubles are applicable to customers of Yandex.Cloud LLC.

What goes into the cost of using Compute Cloud

The cost of Compute Cloud usage is based on:

  • Computing resources
    • Type and number of cores (vCPU)
    • Amount of memory (RAM)
  • Operating systems
  • Type and size of storage:
    • Disks
    • Images
    • Snapshots
  • The amount of outgoing traffic.
  • Public IP address.

In all calculations, 1 GB = 230 bytes.

VM usage

The cost of a VM depends on the allocated computing resources, operating system, and usage time. Attached disks and network usage are charged separately.

The cost is calculated for the time of using the VM, from the moment it is started (when its status changes to RUNNING) until it is completely stopped. The time when the VM is stopped is not charged.

The VM starts automatically once it is created.

When creating a VM, you can specify a public IP address for it. For information about external IP address usage pricing, see Pricing for Virtual Private Cloud in the Yandex Virtual Private Cloud service documentation.

Computing resources

When creating a VM, you specify the number of vCPUs and graphics accelerators (GPUs), as well as the basic level of core performance and the amount of RAM in GB. Read more in Levels of core performance.

The basic level of core performance depends on the platform you selected.

The price is indicated for 1 hour of use. Charging per second.

Operating systems

OS usage on a VM is charged, as well. The cost depends on the OS license and the amount of computing resources. The core usage type selected for the VM also matters.

The price is indicated for 1 hour of use. Charging per second.

Example of cost calculation

Let's compare the cost of running VMs on the Intel Broadwell platform with different vCPU performance levels.

Two VMs have been created running Linux OS:

  • 5% of vCPU and 1 GB RAM
  • 100% of vCPU and 1 GB RAM

Both VMs have been running for 30 days.

VM cost with 5% vCPU:

5% vCPU = ₽0.1932/hour * 30 days * 24 hours = ₽139.1040

1 GB RAM = ₽0.2441/hour * 30 days * 24 hours = ₽175.7520

Total: ₽314.8560

VM cost with 100% vCPU:

1 vCPU = ₽0.7017/hour * 30 days * 24 hours = ₽505.2240

1 GB RAM = ₽0.2441/hour * 30 days * 24 hours = ₽175.7520

Total: ₽680.9760

As you can see, the cost of the VM using 5% vCPU is about half as much as that of the VM using 100% vCPU.

Use of storage (disks, snapshots, and images)

When creating a disk, you specify its size, that is, the amount of block storage that the disk occupies. The cost of the service depends on the time between the disk's creation and deletion, the amount of disk space, and the disk type selected during its creation.

You are charged for your disks regardless of whether the VM is running.

If you created an image or snapshot, you pay for the storage of this object separately depending on its size.

The cost is specified for one month of use. Billing occurs per second.

Usage Instance Groups

The Instance Groups component can be used free of charge. You can create instance groups and use the storage and computing resources within the available limits.

All other Yandex.Cloud services, such as creation of VMs or allocation of external IP addresses, are charged as usual. Outgoing traffic is charged the same as other services.
