On demand vs Reserved

On demand and Reserved instances are available for Metal and Accelerate.

On demand

On-demand servers are pre-defined configurations that built to support most workloads. Create and delete servers as you wish with no long-term commitments, paying only for the time you use.

On demand instances are billed by the hour.


Considerably reduce costs by committing to a server configuration. By reserving an instance, you commit to the configuration, not the instance itself, so you can still upgrade or change instances during the contract.

Save 30% for 1-year contracts. Reserved instances are always paid upfront for the committed period.
