Introducing Data Transfer Pricing Model for Bare Metal Cloud

We’ve traditionally offered a flat-rate pricing model that lets you commit to one bandwidth level for traffic – both to and from your bare metal instance(s). This model gives you unlimited data transfers and you’re only billed monthly for your level of bandwidth commit.

While this model works for most customers, we wanted to also give you the flexibility to pay only for what you use. That’s why we developed our new data transfer pricing model. Instead of committing to one bandwidth level, you can now set the amount of total traffic you need from 5-100TB, in 1TB increments.

You can still choose flat-rate pricing when provisioning an instance, but if you wanted to try out our new data transfer pricing, just follow these simple steps:

Zenlayer tip!

Step 5. Directly below that is a sliding scale that you can use to configure your data transfer package in 1TB increments. Your total price (at the bottom) will update to reflect your package chosen.

Zenlayer tip! 
You might have noticed that you can also set a bandwidth cap for your data transfers below the sliding scale. This is an option we provide that most customers won’t really need. We recommend leaving it at the default limit of 1000Mbps. If you’re not sure, feel free to consult with our 24/7 support team
