Cloud Providers

Hetzner

Hetzner is an award-winning provider, born and based in Germany. They are one of our favorite providers because they are reliable and cost effective. Most of the time, you get twice the CPU & RAM for the same price compared to other providers.

We also love Hetzner for their commitment to promoting an energy-efficient use of the internet. All of their datacenters are powered by renewable energy.

20 TB of bandwidth is included with all VM sizes.

BYOVM (Bring Your Own VM)

You can also deploy into your own cloud account from any cloud provider (Azure, GCP, Alibaba, Oracle, etc.) or from an VM hosted on-premise. In these instances, you are responsible for the relationship with your provider while we take care of the management side of things.

Pricing

Pricing is based on the specification of the VM you are connecting: 

$5 per vCPU + $2.5 per GB of Ram + $0.25 per 10GB of disk.

Example: if you are connecting a VM with 2 vCPU + 4GB Ram + 40GB Disk, the cost per month will be:

(5*2) +  (2.5*4) + (0.25*4) = ~$21/mo

Price per hour is then calculated like this: $21/730h = $0.02876/h

You can create one BYOVM service for free. To be eligible the VM you connect must have no more than 2 vCPU, max 4 GB of ram and max 80 GB of storage.

BYOVM with AWS EC2

You can deploy an Elestio service on your own AWS account with BYOVM


To do it, you will need to create a VM on AWS EC2, first connect to AWS EC2 dashboard: 

https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/v2/home#Instances:instanceState=running

There click on "Launch instances" button and click on the select button on the row with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Next Choose an Instance type based on your needs (T3 Medium is a good base if you don't know yet what you will need)

image-1648558725496.png

Then click on NEXT (configure instance details) button

image-1648558771307.png

There is nothing to do, just click on "Next: add storage" button

image-1648558878069.png

In the disk size configure at least 20GB then click on the Next button again, you will arrive on the Step 5 with tags, nothing to do there, click again on Next to go to security groups configuration
