VEXXHOST is excited to announce the revamp of our public cloud billing model! We’re always looking for ways to improve our offerings and deliver on the needs of our clients. That’s why we have recently made the switch from hourly billing to per minute billing for our public cloud clients.
This update not only enables VEXXHOST to deliver increasingly competitive pricing but also provides other significant benefits to our users.
The primary benefit to our public cloud users comes is the form of reduced costs. For those whose workloads are static and planned, a change in price may not be immediate, however, for those whose workloads are less predictable and fluctuate, the cost savings will be more noticeable. This is because VEXXHOST’s public cloud users are now paying more specifically for the resources they need only when in use. For example, if a resource is running for 20 minutes, that is the amount the user will be charged for as opposed to a full hour.
Additionally, VEXXHOST’s public cloud users will be able to have better control over their costs and instance configuration. Users can further improve their costs by harnessing more compute power by way of increasing the number of instances they use for the jobs they run.
This billing update also provides a safety net to our users in cases where they may have accidentally spun up more machines than intended. In an hourly billing situation, should a client input 300 instead of 30 into their code, their spend could have a detrimental impact. With per minute billing, however, users have the opportunity to reign in the outcome and pay a minute per instance instead.
As an experienced cloud computing provider, VEXXHOST knows the importance of bringing on new and beneficial features without playing favourites between solutions.
