Pricing policy for Object Storage

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 Object Storage

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.

In all calculations, 1 GB = 230 bytes.

Using storage

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 Rate for 1 GB per month, without VAT
Standard storage $0.016166
Cold storage $0.008605
Service Rate for 1 GB per month, with VAT
Standard storage ₽1.2610
Cold storage ₽0.6712

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 * 12 / 24 / 30
