Overview

Last Updated: May 19, 2022

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 (EIP). 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 the 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 1,000, you are not charged. Otherwise, you are charged for the excess cores based on the pay-as-you-go billing method.

Region

Hourly bill (USD)

Regions in the Chinese mainland

  • Less than or equal to 1,000 cores: free

  • More than 1,000 cores: USD 0.003/core/hour

(n-1000)×0.003

Regions outside the Chinese mainland

  • Less than or equal to 1,000 cores: free

  • More than 1,000 cores: USD 0.004/core/hour

(n-1000)×0.004

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

Scenario

Billing

Hourly bill (USD)

Create one cluster that has 1,000 cores in the Singapore (Singapore) region.

You are not charged because the total number of cores does not exceed 1,000.

0

Create one cluster that has 2,000 cores in the Singapore (Singapore) region.

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

(2000-1000)×0.004=4

Create two clusters in the Singapore (Singapore) region. One cluster has 2,000 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.

(2500-1000)×0.004=6

Create one cluster in the Singapore (Singapore) region and another in the Germany (Frankfurt) region. Each cluster has 1,000 cores.

You are not charged because the total number of cores in each region does not exceed 1,000.

0

Create one cluster in the Singapore (Singapore) region and another in the Germany (Frankfurt) region. The cluster in the Singapore (Singapore) region has 2,000 cores and the cluster in the Germany (Frankfurt) region has 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 1,000.

(2000-1000)×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 is bound to the logon node and a specific amount of public bandwidth is configured by default.
