Cloud Servers Pricing

When you sign up for a cloud account, you'll enjoy flexible pricing, allowing you to scale up and down whilst only paying for what you use. We charge for Cloud Servers from the time you activate them until you delete them.

If you'd like us to manage your application infrastructure, sign up for a Managed Cloud accounts, available for a £65/month account fee plus the utility rate for each product in your configuration.

  • Most general-purpose computing workloads
Features:
  • Low to medium RAM
  • High-performance, RAID 10-protected SSD storage
  • Redundant 10-Gigabit networking*
  • From 1–8 vCPUs*
  • Disk I/O up to ~35,000 4K random read IOPS and ~35,000 4K random write IOPS.**

 

*Minimally shared with fair weighting. Allows burst when idle resources are available. In rare cases, resources may be throttled back under heavy host contention. **Disk I/O is shared across the host.

Pricing for Cloud Servers images

You can create an image of any Cloud Server, and use this image to restore the server or clone a new one. You can create an unlimited number of images on-demand, or schedule automatic daily or weekly images (scheduled images available on first generation Cloud Servers only at present).

Images will be compressed and stored on Rackspace Cloud Files at standard prices. If you delete a Cloud Server, any associated images will persist in Cloud Files until you specifically delete them. This allows you to recreate the server at any time.

Pricing for file level Backup

Rackspace Cloud Backup is a file level backup service available for use with Cloud Servers. Cloud Backup containers will be compressed, de-duped, and stored on Rackspace Cloud Files and charged at standard Cloud Files prices.

In addition, there is a monthly charge of £8 per Cloud Server backed up, however for customers with a Managed Service level this is included at no extra charge in your monthly account fee.

Rackspace Cloud Backup utilises the internal Rackspace infrastructure, so you won't incur outbound bandwidth charges. If you delete a Cloud Server, the associated backup container stored on Cloud Files will persist in your account unless the backup container is explicitly removed.

Pricing for additional IP addresses

Additional public IPv4 addresses can be purchased for both first generation and next generation Cloud Servers. Restrictions apply; read this Knowledge Centre article for more details.

Additional IPv4 addresses for first generation Cloud Servers are priced at £2 per IP per month. Please contact us for relevant next generation Cloud Server pricing.

Pricing for next generation Cloud Servers

Not yet ready to move to Performance Cloud Servers? You can find pricing details for next generation Cloud Servers here.

Pricing for Cloud Queues

You'll get 1 million API requests FREE per month, and pay only £0.0075 per 10,000 requests after that.  Find out more.

1The number of virtual CPUs assigned to your Cloud Server. A vCPU corresponds to a physical CPU thread.
2The amount of disk space allocated to your Cloud Server's operating system. System disks are RAID 10-protected and are captured when you image a server.
3The amount of additional disk space allocated for your application data. Data disks are RAID 10-protected and are NOT captured when you image a server.
4The amount of aggregate outbound bandwidth across all attached network interfaces (PublicNet, ServiceNet, Cloud Networks). The maximum amount of outbound public Internet bandwidth is limited to 40% of the aggregate limit. Inbound traffic is not limited. Host networking is redundant and bandwidth is delivered over two separate bonded interfaces, each able to carry 50% of the aggregate limit. We recommend using multiple Layer 4 connections to maximise throughput.
5A £65/month fee applies to Managed Cloud Accounts.
