In what increments do you track usage? Do you round up like AWS?
We track usage in 5 minute increments and only charge you for any fraction of that hour that you use. If you only use 10 minutes, you’re only charged for 10 minutes.
Do you charge while instances are off?
While your instances are off, you only pay for the volume storage required for us to store your server image. Volume storage pricing is $0.25CAD / GB / month, or ~$0.0003CAD / GB / hr. This can enable huge cost savings for test and QA environments.
How do you come up with the monthly figure when you’re charging hourly?
Our monthly pricing is based on a 720 hour month. It is about the maximum that you will pay per month if you leave it running for an entire month.
Do I need to provide a credit card to sign up?
Yes. We require a credit card to be on file for all new signups. This is a measure put in place primarily to prevent abuse. If you would like to know more, read here.
Do you offer discounts or credits to open source projects?
We would love to work something out with you, please contact us with your requirements and we can chat about it!
What if my server requirements don’t fit one of the listed flavours?

What is the cost of server snapshots?
Server snapshots cost $0.15CAD / GB / month billed for only as long as your snapshot exists, and you are only charged for the compressed size of your snapshot — not the provisioned disk size. Maintaining Snapshots of your servers can be a cost effective way to backup and reprovision servers on demand.
When you choose Cloud A’s Infrastructure as a service (IAAS) you get the benefit of an SSD powered, Openstack platform with no setup fees or hidden costs in the fine print. You only pay for what you use, you can stop using any resource at any time and when you do, we stop billing you for that resource. With our easy to understand dashboard, you can always know exactly what instances are active as well as what your running total fees are for the month (in real time) so you never have to guess how much your bill will be.
Our SSD cloud servers host all of your data in Canada, and because we know that performance and reliability truly matter we only use top of the line equipment, giving you more performance per virtual CPU and per GB of RAM then can be found anywhere else in the world.
