Prices are subject to change, and specific requirements can change the pricing. This tool is designed to guide you to the best possible quote. Optional monthly backup charges can vary widely based on actual utilization, the amount of change, and the type of your data. Customizing your backup include and exclude rules as well as your retention policy can help reduce backup costs significantly.

If your I/O exceed the allowed IOPs for your storage tier, you will be notified to upgrade to the next level of storage or to optimize your application I/O. For customer equipment installs, additional one-time costs may apply for modifying existing power or racks to accomodate certain configurations. Customers needing attached storage for their own equipment will need to include HBA(s)(two FC ports minimum)-the blade service includes HBAs in the rate already.

Customers are strongly encouraged to use the shared VPS environment instead of dedicated equipment.

Estimator and Billing Help:

For questions about using this estimator, or how to coordinate multiple components, please contact

IST Services are often a combination of support from multiple internal IST units such as virtual, storage, database, and data center operations units. A web application for example might include a database package and a web hosting package, and blade rental might include the blade charge and attached SAN storage, all of which will appear as single or multiple line items on your billing statements depending on the service and selected options.

For assistance with billing please see Help with Project & Flex Fields for guidelines.
