Pricing for dinCloud Hosted Virtual Servers
Hosted Virtual Server Pricing
The many benefits of cloud are attainable without significant capital expenditure. And best of all, you can avoid surprises on your cloud bill with flat rate pricing from dinCloud. dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Server pricing is calculated per server based on the CPU, RAM and DISK selected. For ease of use, we’ve packaged Hosted Virtual Server resources, based on commonly used consumption models, but you can always customize (CPU, RAM and Disk) as needed.
Sample Hosted Virtual Server Packages
|Packages||GB RAM||vCPU||GB disk Space Built In|
|Performance Express||8 GB||4||200|
|Task Express||4 GB||2||80|
For example, our Performance Express comes with 8 GB RAM, 4vCPU, and 200 GB disk space built-in. This package is designed to meet the demands of resource intensive workloads. Meanwhile the Task Express is designed for those only running one workload. To meet the lesser demands of this workload, this package is designed with 4 GB RAM, 2 vCPU, and 80 GB disk space built-in. These packages are customizable, as additional RAM, CPU and DISK can be added on as needed. Plus, all packages are available with your choice of Windows or Linux OS.
As with all dinCloud services, you pay a flat monthly subscription price for your configuration. Cancel with just 30 days’ notice. No long-term contracts. And you can always re-configure in real time, by spinning resources up or down via dinManage, our cloud provisioning and orchestration platform.
