Our prices are all inclusive, all of the following are included in the hourly service price:

  • Virtual machine costs
  • Network costs
  • Backup costs
  • Setup costs

Note: While we do not charge you for the network traffic, your application cloud service provider may charge you for the network traffic going to or from our services.

Our minimum hourly charge unit is one hour. For example, when you launch an Aiven service and terminate it after 40 minutes, you will be charger for one full hour. Likewise, if you terminate a service after 40.5 hours, you will be charged for full 41 hours.

Terminating or powering a service down will stop the accumulation of new charges immediately. However, the one hour minimum charge unit described above still applies.

Migrations to different service plans levels (e.g. Startup-4 to Business-8) do not cost any extra on top of the increase in hourly charges due to the plan upgrade.

Migrating a service to another cloud region or different cloud provider does not cost any extra.
