Changes to Our Price Plans

Our subscription plans are available on a per-month basis, with each plan offering a set of fixed resources. Whenever you need additional resources, you can scale-up instantly via the Cloud Console. Costs for additional resources can be estimated in advance to avoid surprises. You can also upgrade or downgrade to another plan instantly without shutting down virtual machines, giving you continuous uptime while minimizing your operating costs.
