Overview

Last Updated: Oct 15, 2021

When you use Elastic High Performance Computing (E-HPC), you may be charged for E-HPC resources or resources of other cloud services, for example, Elastic Compute Service (ECS), Apsara File Storage NAS, and Elastic IP Address. This topic describes the billable resources and billing methods of E-HPC.

E-HPC resources

E-HPC allows you to manage clusters by using multiple methods. You can create or delete elastic nodes, call API operations, monitor cluster metrics, configure alerts, use O&M tools, and configure automated O&M of the backend. The following table describes the prices of E-HPC.

Note

The prices in this topic are for reference only. The prices displayed on the buy page of E-HPC prevail.

If the total number of cores in your cluster in a region is less than or equal to 200, you are not charged. Otherwise, you are charged for the excess cores based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

Region

Price

Hourly bill (USD)

Mainland China

  • Less than or equal to 200 cores: free

  • More than 200 cores: USD 0.003/core/hour

(n-200)×0.003

Regions outside mainland China

  • Less than or equal to 200 cores: free

  • More than 200 cores: USD 0.004/core/hour

(n-200)×0.004

The following table provides billing examples of E-HPC in several common scenarios.

Scenario

Billing

Hourly bill (USD)

Create a cluster that has 200 cores in the Singapore (Singapore) region.

You are not charged because the total number of cores does not exceed 200.

0

Create a cluster that has 1,200 cores in the Singapore (Singapore) region.

You are charged for the excess 1,000 cores based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

(1200-200)×0.004=4

Create two clusters in the Singapore (Singapore) region. One cluster has 1,200 cores and the other has 500 cores.

You are charged for the excess 1,500 cores based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

(1700-200)×0.004=6

Create a cluster in the Singapore (Singapore) region and another one in the Germany (Frankfurt) region. Each cluster has 200 cores.

You are not charged because the total number of cores in each region does not exceed 200.

0

Create a cluster in the Singapore (Singapore) region and a cluster in the Germany (Frankfurt) region. The cluster in the Singapore (Singapore) region has 200 cores and the cluster in the Germany (Frankfurt) region has 1,200 cores.

You are charged for the excess 1,000 cores in the Singapore (Singapore) region based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

However, you are not charged for the cluster in the Germany (Frankfurt) region because the total number of cores in the region does not exceed 200.

(1200-200)×0.004=4

References

ECS

Each node in a cluster is an ECS instance. When you create a cluster, an ECS instance is automatically purchased for the cluster. You do not need to purchase an ECS instance in advance.

NAS

E-HPC clusters use NAS file systems as the shared storage of nodes in a cluster.

NAS pricing

EIP

After you create an E-HPC cluster, an elastic IP address (EIP) is bound to the logon node and a specific amount of public bandwidth is configured by default.
