Infrastructure Cost Management¶
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers supply the underlying infrastructure (compute, storage, network) resources that power Frame accounts. If you are using Frame-managed public cloud infrastructure (you purchased Nutanix IaaS Credits and did not bring your own public cloud account), you will consume IaaS credits when virtual machines (“VMs” or “instances”) are powered on and disk storage is consumed.
Each instance type and disk storage have an IaaS credit consumption rate which effectively maps to the cost per hour. With 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.
