Blades

How are blade tier prices determined?

All blades have a published monthly fee for the nominated contract term (1, 12, 24, 36 months). See ...Cloud Infrastructure Gen2 pricing guide for the latest fees. Rebates are available for customers who have more than four identical blades (CPU, RAM and Storage configuration) within a single compute subscription (location). Rebates are offered in two tiers: 5-8 blades and 9+ blades. Rebates apply only to that tier and vary with configurations.

 

Blade Configuration

 

Volume Monthly Tiering Rebate (Per Blade)

5-8 blades

9+ blades

Blade (2 CPU, 128 GB RAM) & 1000 GB Active Storage

-$100

-$200

Blade (2 CPU, 256 GB RAM)  & 1000 GB Active Storage

-$125

-$250

Blade (4 CPU, 512 GB RAM)  & 1000 GB Active Storage

-$150

-$300

TDI Blade (2 CPU, 768 GB RAM)  & 1000 GB Performance Storage

-$200

-$400

 

When you purchase additional blades, taking you into a higher tier, you will receive the monthly rebate for each blade in that tier for that particular configuration.

 

Will the tiered rebate be applied to all of my blades?

No. The rebate is only applied to the blades within the applicable tier, not every blade in that location.

 

How do blade tiering rebates appear on my bill?

The blade price will not be adjusted to the tiered price on your bill. You will receive a charge on your bill for each blade at the published blade price, along with a corresponding credit that matches your quantity and configuration.

 

For example:

If you have 9 (2 CPU, 256 GB RAM) blades for 3 years in one location, all blades aside from the four initial units are eligible for rebates. You will see:

9 blades @ $1650

4 credits @ $125 (only the 4 blades in the 5-8 tier are eligible for rebates)

1 credits @ $250 (only the 1 blade in the 9+ tier is eligible for a rebate)

 

Storage

How are storage tier prices determined?

Storage tiered pricing is calculated based on the monthly amount of allocated storage you have of the same type (active, performance, ultra) within a single compute subscription (location).

 

Storage Tier

Monthly allocation per location

Tier 0

0 -10,000 GB

Tier 1

10,001 – 100,000 GB

Tier 2

>100,001 GB

 

 Once you have allocated past a tier threshold, any additional allocated storage will be charged at the price of the next tier.

 

Will the tiered price be applied to all of my storage?

No. The tiered price is only applied to the amount of allocated storage you have within the applicable tier, not all allocated storage.

 

How does storage tiered pricing appear on my bill?

The storage amount in each tier would appear as separate items on the bill.

 

For example:

If you have 50,000 GB of active storage for your compute subscription, you will see:

10,000 @ $0.15 (Tier 0 price)

40,000 @ $0.12 (Tier 1 price)
