# Pricing policy for Yandex Object Storage

## What goes into the cost of Object Storage use

The cost of Object Storage usage is based on:

- The amount of storage used by your data.
- The number of operations on your data.
- The amount of outgoing traffic.

Users can access:

- Cold storage: a low rate for data storage and a high rate for operations. It is optimal for storing a large volume of data with a small number of operations on it.
- Standard storage: a high rate for data storage and a low rate for operations. It is optimal for storing a small amount of data with a large number of operations on it.

### General rules for calculating the cost of consumption

For each resource category:

- The minimum cost of consumption is equal to 0.01 rubles.
- The estimated cost of consumption is rounded up to the nearest hundredth of a ruble.

In all calculations, 1 GB = 2^{30} bytes.

### Data storage use

Storage usage is measured in GB per month. The volume of data stored during a month is the average value over the month based on per-second data. The minimum pricing unit is 1 hour of storing 1 MB of data.

### Performing operations on data

Operations on data are rated according to the rules:

- The minimum pricing unit for PUT operations is 10.
- The minimum pricing unit for GET and HEAD operations is 100.
- You are not charged for deleting data (the DELETE operation).

## Prices

### Data storage

Prices are specified for a 30-day month. For shorter months, the price is higher. For longer months, it is lower.

Service | Cost of 1 GB per month, without VAT | Cost of 1 GB per month, with VAT |
---|---|---|

Standard storage | 1.05 ₽ | 1.24 ₽ |

Cold storage | 0.56 ₽ | 0.66 ₽ |

Here is an example of proportional calculation: let's say the user stores 15 GB of data for 11.5 hours during a month that is 30 days long. The total cost of storage can be calculated using the formula:

```
Storage_cost = Cost_per_GB_per_month * 15 * 11.5 / 24 / 30
```

### Operations on data

Service | Cost, rubles without VAT | Cost, rubles with VAT |
