Cloud Servers

GoGrid Cloud Servers are resilient, preconfigured, high-performance workhorses that provide complete control—with root access, the ability to add data and applications, and the ability to control the data center location.

  • Point-and-click provisioning
  • Optimal price/performance
  • Easy administration via console access

Pricing

GoGrid offers hourly, monthly, and annual Cloud Server pricing. With our hourly pay-as-you-go option, you simply pay for the resources you use. There is no commitment, and you’re free to cancel at any time. If you’re willing to commit to a prepaid monthly or annual Cloud Server plan, you can save money when compared to hourly Cloud Server charges.

Notes:

  • Cloud Servers with Windows Server OS version 2008 and earlier deployed with 16 GB RAM or 24 GB are assigned 8 cores.
  • Your CPU allocation will vary depending on the profile of the physical node on which your Cloud Server resides.
  • Windows licensing is included for free on all Cloud Servers.

MyGSI Migration

Deploy multi-data-center solutions without having to rebuild your Cloud Server. You can copy your GoGrid Server Image (MyGSI) for a one-time $50 fee. See our wiki for complete details.

Bandwidth Pricing (data transfer)

On GoGrid, data transfer is measured in gigabytes. There are no charges for private network data transfer between servers within a single data center. There are also no costs associated with inbound data transfer to your servers. You’ll only be charged based on your outbound data transfer. Pricing for outbound data transfer starts at just $0.12 per GB. See the Data Transfer page for complete details.

About Hourly Cloud Server Billing

With this option, you accrue usage charges by the hour for each Cloud Server you create. To stop all charges, you simply delete all Cloud Servers in the account. For example, if you create a 1 GB server using GoGrid and 1 hour later delete the server, you accrue charges for 1 hour of usage. Usage consists of accumulated hourly charges, transfer, and Cloud Storage charges.

About Prepaid Cloud Server Billing

If you deploy prepaid Cloud Servers, you’re billed in advance for each server. To stop all charges, you simply delete all virtual servers in the account before the end of the term. Prepaid servers are not prorated. For example, if you create a 1 GB monthly prepaid Cloud Server using GoGrid and 10 days later delete the server, you’ll still be charged for the full month. If you deploy a single server for 10 days, delete the server, and then deploy a second server for the rest of the month, you’ll be charged for two monthly prepaid Cloud Servers. Additional usage charges consist of transfer and Cloud Storage charges.

Use Cases

GoGrid’s hourly, monthly, and annual Cloud Server solutions are designed to address a variety of needs. Whether you’re running a fast-changing development and test environment, a multi-server web application, or an internal database app, GoGrid has the right Cloud Server solution for you.

Hourly pay-as-you-go Cloud Servers
Hourly pay-as-you-go is the most flexible pricing option available, letting you deploy GoGrid Cloud Servers for as little as $.03 per hour. This is an ideal choice if you want an inexpensive, elastic, reliable, on-demand virtual server with absolutely no commitment or up-front charges. You pay for resources by the hour and can increase or decrease the number of servers to meet your needs. We recommend pay-as-you-go pricing if you’re running:

  • Applications with short-term or unpredictable workloads
  • Applications that are in the process of being developed and tested
  • Short-term proof of concept (POC) or project-based workloads where speed to market, flexibility, and zero commitment are important

Monthly and annual prepaid Cloud Servers
Prepaid Cloud Servers are designed to let you save compared to hourly pay-as-you-go costs. You prepay for your server for a specified term; in return for your term commitment, you save significantly. We recommend this choice if you’re willing to commit to deploying a server for a longer period of time. Prepaid servers are ideal if you’re running:

  • Applications with more predictable usage
  • Web applications or steady-state applications

Windows OS

These base images are maintained by GoGrid. They come with full root/administrator access and can be customized and used as the starting point for your custom server images. All Windows operating system licenses are free. There is a surcharge for SQL Server. More images, preinstalled and preconfigured with a variety of solutions, are available to you via some of our partners.
