Prices reduced for Gandi Cloud hosting
After studying how our IaaS services are used, and evaluating how they are priced, we have decided to cut prices and simplify the pricing model. As of 02/19/2015, you will be able to save up to 40%, depending on your usage pattern.
We aren’t just cutting prices across the board. There is a boost in capacity for bigger users, too. The prior limit of 500GB of free outbound traffic per month is now lifted to 2 TB (4 times as much!) per month. Of course you can still use more, we just ask you to pay a bit for really extreme loads over 2 TB/month. This higher limit is possible due to investments we have made in optimizing our infrastructure, and we are passing the benefits on to you. Also, as IPv4 has become more expensive, the price of an IPv4 interface has actually gone up, while IPv6 is (and always was) free. Also, a vCPU is now $0.004 / €0.0033 per hour, and we no longer charge more if you don’t use as many – it’s just a flat, predictable cost per unit.
If you are a heavy user of Gandi Cloud hosting, you will see a big drop in your overall cost of ownership. Smaller footprint users will see smaller benefits, proportionally.
Also, on top of the recent fluctuations in currency values between the US dollar and the Euro, we have decreased credit prices in USD by 7.5%.
Here’s some examples of pricing in dollars / euros for typical configurations (based on buying a 2 Millions credit pack):
- 1 CPU + 1GB RAM + 20GB disk + 1 IPV4: from $17.30 / €13.31 (264 credits / hour) to $13.79 / €12.67 (220 cr / h) per month
- 2 CPU + 2GB RAM + 50GB disk + 1 IPV4: from $33.28 / €25.60 to $23.95 / €19.96 per month
- 4 CPU + 4GB RAM + 200GB disk + 1 IPV4: from $72.73 / €55.94 to $49.71 / €41.43 per month
If you choose only IPv6, you can save even more, and end up paying less than 10 dollars a month for a server:
- 1 CPU + 1GB RAM + 20GB + 1 IPV6 would cost $9.56 / €7.96 per month.
If you recently purchased a bunch of credits, dont’ worry! You will still benefit from these changes, since your credits will last that much longer.
