Infrastructure Cost Management¶
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers supply the underlying virtual machines that power Xi Frame accounts. If your Xi Frame account infrastructure is managed by Frame (you did not bring your own cloud account), you will consume IaaS credits when virtual machines (“VMs” or “instances”) are powered on. Each instance type has an IaaS credit consumption rate which effectively maps to the cost per hour. With Xi Frame-managed infrastructure, usage (compute) is charged at $0.01 per credit for all available subscription plans. Credits are also consumed when using storage (such as disk volumes for your VMs) or special add-ons. Information about consumption rates and specifications for each instance type by IaaS provider can be found on our pricing page.
