IaaS Pricing

Simple. Transparent. No Surprises.

Alpha3 Cloud comes with pay-as-you-use pricing with complete transparency. You are free to build your infrastructure and deploy your resources however you like, and we bill you based on aggregated resource consumption. For example, we track CPU, RAM, Storage, and Data traffic every five minutes, and you are only billed for the usage, not the server sizing. You have options to purchase a resource on-demand or subscribe to it or have a combination of these two. You are in total control.

IaaS Pricing & Billing FAQs

How are cloud servers billed?

Our system tracks your usage for CPU, RAM, Storage, etc., every five minutes and calculates the usage against your subscription amount. For any usage above the subscription level, charges are automatically calculated on a rolling basis on five-minute bursts.

What is your billing cycle?

Alpha3 Cloud has 5-minutes billing cycles. Resource usage is tracked and billed every five minutes, and the appropriate balance is also deducted from your account every five minutes.

Do I need to purchase for a time period?

No. You don’t need to purchase resources in advance. Since we have a short 5-minutes billing cycle, you will be billed every five minutes according to resource usage. If you like, you can opt for a subscription for one month, one year (10% discount), or three years (25% discount).

What happens if resource usage goes above subscription?

Our system tracks your usage, and when it goes above subscription level, we’ll simply charge additional usage based on short 5-minutes bursts cycles.

Why charge in GHz instead of CPU cores and server sizing?

Alpha3 Cloud gives its users the freedom to customize their virtual machines for optimal performance. You can have any combination of server size and virtual cores. For example, for a 10GHz server size, you can have 5 virtual cores of 2GHz or 10 virtual cores of 1 GHz. So based on the application requirements for CPU and throughput, you can completely optimize your cloud servers for performance without upsizing.

What are your purchasing models?

We have two options- Subscriptions and Bursts. If you have predictable workloads, you can pay upfront via subscription. You can go for the bursts model for on-demand capacity, where we charge in short 5-minutes bursts cycles. You can combine two models for your resources, and we’ll charge automatically based on short 5-minutes bursts if you go above your subscription usage.

Am I billed for shut-down servers?

Simply No. We track usage and bill accordingly. So we won’t charge for CPU, RAM, Data Traffic, etc., but persistent resources like storage will be billed.

Can I buy more than one subscription for a resource?

Yes, you can buy a subscription on top of what you already have based on your requirements.

How do I move from trial to full account without downtime?

The transition from a trial to a full account is seamless and straightforward without any service interruption. Just add funds to your accounts after your trial period ends, and you will be upgraded to a full-paying account. Since we separate trial and paying users for security reasons, we recommend that at some point, you clone your drives and restart your servers so that you are completely separated from trial users.

What payment methods are accepted?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, PayPal, and bank transfers. Your account balance is updated in real-time when funds are cleared, except for the first payment on new accounts (which can take a couple of hours).

What is the benefit of the Saved Payment Method?

Yes. A saved payment method ensures that your subscriptions are auto-renewed and funds are added automatically when required.

Do you store any payment information?

Any payment method information is held at the payment processor only. Alpha3 Cloud does not store any information about your cards or other payment methods.

Do you auto-renew my subscriptions?

Auto-renewal is disabled by default. However, it is recommended to turn it on for convenience and avoid the manual purchase.

How many currencies do you support?

Currently, we have US locations, so we only support United States Dollars (USD).
