Cluster

Prices below are the indication for a full month subscription. You’ll be charged by the minute. We adjust our prices as often as possible in order to pass on the regular price decreases of your underlying infrastructure suppliers (Amazon, ...).

Load Balancer

A load balancer is mandatory if you want to expose a service to the web. When you create your project, we add a load balancer by default as required in the vast majority of cases. If you don’t need it (for example if you only need the cluster to run large calculations on big data), you can remove it at any time.

Option Price
Load Balancer $60/Month
$36/Month

As we rely on different IaaS providers (currently only AWS), our prices also reflect variable costs that are charged by AWS. The way AWS compute their prices is quite complex. You can have all the details about how our prices are calculated here.

You don't know which cluster to choose?

At SquareScale, we want to make developers life easier, so here are 4 scenarios with which you can see the global prices including the variable part:

This is Dan

Dan owns a very successful, high traffic music streaming service, which gets a lot of traffic every day. The business gets a great deal of traffic during the festive periods. So Dan and his team need to be ready to scale in an instant.

During the festive periods only

Dan provisioned

  • ▸ 1 Large cluster with 20 nodes($5760/month)
  • ▸ 1 Large database ($480/month)
  • ▸ 1 Load balancer ($36/month)

The profile of his app is

  • ▸ 1000 users per day
  • ▸ 1 peak per week (100 times increase in traffic for 4 hours)

So the variable costs are: $1000

Dan pays $8760/Month

The rest of the time

He only needs to provision:

  • ▸ 1 Large cluster (3 nodes) ($864/month)
  • ▸ 1 Large database ($480/month)
  • ▸ 1 Load balancer ($36/month)

The profile of his app is

  • ▸ 500 users per day
  • ▸ 1 peak per week (10 times increase in traffic for 2 hours)

So the variable costs are: $50

Dan pays $1430/Month

Thanks to SquareScale:

He can adapt the size of his infrastructure according to the period: decrease the cost when he knows that traffic is low, and have great performances when the load is high.

SquareScale saved him:

▸ Hiring a senior sysadmin ($120K avg per year)

This is Emma

She runs a small startup and is very excited about finally deploying the first version. Her plan predicts some traffic and growth over the next few weeks, she wants to be ready to react!

Emma provisioned

  • ▸ 1 Small cluster (3 nodes) ($288/month)
  • ▸ 1 Small database ($60/month)
  • ▸ 1 Load balancer ($36/month)

The profile of her app is:

  • ▸ 100 users per day
  • ▸ 10GB of docker images storage

So the variable costs are: $8

Emma pays $392/Month

Thanks to SquareScale:

She's ready to easily scale her app according to the growth of her startup!

SquareScale saved her:

▸ Two weeks spent by Paul, the lead tech, setting up the infrastructure (database, firewall, networks, nodes, ...) and its services (scheduler, service discovery, etc.)

▸ Up to two days per week spent by Paul on average deploying and maintaining the infrastructure, namely almost 100 days per year he could have spent developing features.

This is Ben

He's the owner of a successful smartphone application, he gets thousands of users per month. Ben is trying to close a series A round of investment and has to prove the scalability of his backend application when launching a new massive marketing campaign.

Ben provisionned

  • ▸ 1 Medium cluster (3 nodes) ($432/month)
  • ▸ 1 Medium database ($144/month)
  • ▸ 1 Load balancer ($36/month)

The profile of his app is:

  • ▸ 250 users per day
  • ▸ 30GB of docker images storage

So the variable costs are: $25

Ben pays $637/Month

Thanks to SquareScale:

He can convince investors that his infrastructure can deal with peaks in load after investing a lot of money in the communication of his product.

SquareScale saved him:

▸ Hiring a junior sysadmin ($70K avg per year)

▸ Three weeks spent by Paul before hiring the sysadmin, the lead tech, setting up the infrastructure (database, firewall, networks, nodes, ...) and its services (scheduler, service discovery, etc.)

This is John

John is creating a new startup. The product is being developed. He's building a microservices architecture. Nothing is ready for production now, but he's using a dev single node project on SquareScale to minimize costs during development and make sure everything works fine.

John provisioned

  • ▸ 1 Single node ($33/month)
  • ▸ 1 Dev database ($27/month)
  • ▸ 1 Load balancer ($36/month)

The profile of his app is very simple:

  • ▸ He is the only user and stores 5GB of docker images.

So the variable costs are: $1

John would pay $97/Month if his app was online a full month.

But because the cluster is launched only when he needs:

John really pays $12/Month

Thanks to SquareScale:

He can build a Cloud Native app from the beginning and will save a lot of money when needing to scale.

SquareScale saved him:

▸ Tons of time setting up a mini on-demand Cloud Native platform and its services that mimic production-like systems, continuous delivery, Github, Travis and Slack integration.

▸ Hours of time he can now spend networking and pitching his startup at meetups and showing his prototype to partners and investors.
