Frequently Asked Questions

How are usage charges calculated?

Charges are calculated per minute of requested resource, per container, with the minimum charging unit being one whole minute. Charges are incurred for each container running on the platform (i.e. if you have 3 replicas of a container running in 3 locations, then charges accumulate for the 9 running containers for each minute they operate).

Each container's charge is calculated as follows:

hours_running * ( vCPU_container_size * cpu_hourly_rate + RAM_container_size * ram_hourly_rate ).

How are storage and egress charges calculated?

Ingress is free. On Starter and Growth plans, a 100GB egress allowance is included for free with every account. Any egress overage is billed at a flat global rate of $0.04 per GB regardless of where your containers are running.

Also included at no extra charge is ephemeral storage for your container. Each container is allotted storage based on the size of the container running at the rate of 15 GiB * (CPU_request + RAM_request).

What are the default settings for my containers?

If no container size is specified in your deployment, then default container sizes are 1 vCPU and 2 GiB RAM.

The minimum container size is 0.5 vCPU and 0.5 GiB RAM, with 0.5 increments available for both RAM and CPU.

Does the location of my container impact the price?

There is a single price per vCPU and GiB across the entire Section platform. In other words, the price per vCPU and GiB is the same regardless of the location of the container.

What is the Adaptive Edge Engine (AEE)?

AEE is a patented-pending technology that is responsible for identifying how to optimize the deployment of your application in different locations based on policies you define. AEE makes decisions based on criteria such as the originating location of traffic, the amount of resources needed to service the application and policies you define such as compliance needs.

AEE will scale workloads and steer traffic to the most appropriate location for your users ensuring your environment is continually optimized.

How does the Adaptive Edge Engine (AEE) impact costs?

AEE will automatically and constantly optimize the number and placement of your containers running pursuant to your specifications for performance and cost. When AEE shuts down a container, then that container immediately stops incurring a charge. AEE will shut down a container in a region either because workload has decreased in that region and multiple copies of the container are no longer required there, or the region itself is no longer required at that time.

How can I control my costs?

Cost can be actively controlled in a number of ways, including setting a maximum number of replicas and/or setting an AEE location strategy that limits the breadth of your application's deployment across the global network.

Additionally, the Section Console provides monthly usage information so you can monitor current charges.

Usage metrics are also available to be streamed to popular monitoring and alerting tools. You can set up alerts when your monthly consumption exceeds a set threshold.

If you have specific cost control requirements, our enterprise plan can be customized to meet your needs.
