This topic describes the billing of Bastionhost. Bastionhost supports only the subscription billing method. You can purchase a bastion host of the Basic or Enterprise edition. The bastion host provides features such as O&M, audit, and management.

Billing cycle

The billing cycle starts from the date that you purchase your bastion host and ends on the date that your bastion host expires.

Billing method

Bastionhost supports only the subscription billing method.

Specifications

You are charged for your bastion host based on the number of assets that the bastion host can manage. We recommend that you purchase a bastion host based on the number of assets that you want to manage. The following table describes the specifications that you must specify to purchase a bastion host.
Specification Description
Number of assets The number of server assets that a bastion host can manage.
Number of concurrent sessions The number of O&M sessions that O&M personnel can initiate in a bastion host. O&M sessions refer to SSH- and RDP-based remote connections.

For example, 20 O&M personnel are employed, and each one initiates an average of five sessions. In this case, a total of 100 concurrent sessions are initiated. The value is calculated by using the following formula: 20 × 5 = 100.

Public bandwidth After you specify the number of assets, the public bandwidth of the bastion host is automatically configured. For more information, see the Service specification column in the table of the Billing rules section.
If the bandwidth cannot meet your business requirements, you can configure Extra Bandwidth. The following list describes the Extra Bandwidth parameter:
  • Value range:10 Mbit/s to 500 Mbit/s
  • Increment:10 Mbit/s
  • Price: For more information, see Billing rules.

Note
  • A bastion host can stably run only if the number of concurrent sessions stays below the upper limit. If the number exceeds the upper limit, the bastion host may encounter service interruptions.
  • If a session contains multiple TCP connections, each TCP connection consumes a concurrent session quota.
  • If you initiate multiple sessions to simultaneously upload or download large files or you initiate multiple sessions to perform complex graphics operations by using a remote desktop, bandwidth usage may spike, and remote sessions may freeze. We recommend that you perform the preceding operations during off-peak hours or purchase extra bandwidth for the bastion host.
  • If you initiate multiple sessions to perform complex graphics operations or open browsers to watch videos by using a remote desktop, overload protection may be triggered due to heavy workloads. After overload protection is triggered, Bastionhost denies new session requests or interrupts existing sessions based on the real-time workloads. We recommend that you perform the preceding operations during off-peak hours or upgrade the specifications of the bastion host.

Expiration

If you do not renew your bastion host after it expires, the bastion host no longer provides services. You cannot log on to the bastion host to perform O&M operations on assets. If you do not renew your bastion host within the grace period of 15 days, the bastion host is released, and the configuration data and audit logs of the bastion host are deleted.

Refunds

Bastionhost does not provide a money-back guarantee.
