What is long-term billing?

We provide discounted prices for committed use that is pre-paid. If you have a continuous need for our instances, you are able to save up to 50% compared to our on-demand pricing by using our long-term billing options.

How to create a long-term billed instance?

Simply configure instance as usual and use the right-hand element to select "Long-term" instead of "On-demand". Upon selecting "Long-term" you are presented with 1, 3, 6, and 12 month options and a break-down of the cost. 

How to manage long-term subscriptions?

Simply navigate: Account > Billing > Long-Term Subscription Resources

From three dots on the right-hand side of the subscription of interest, select "Stop renewal" to stop the subscription from automatically renewing at Renewal/End Date. This will change the Status from "Active" to "Ending". Past subscriptions have the status "Ended".

  • Something happened, can I start over?

You are also free to destroy and recreate your long-term billed instances. How this works is that upon destroying the instance, via our UI, you are able to create a new instance based on this existing subscription.

Please note:

Keep in mind that the subscription is for a specific instance type only, so you are not able to pay for 1 GPU of a 2 GPU instance at a long-term price and then for remaining 1 GPU at on-demand price.
