App Engine

How App Engine pricing works

With App Engine you pay only for your resource consumption. The resources are provisioned with granular units called "Cloudlets". This allows to allocate exactly the needed amount of resources.
1 Cloudlet = 128MiB of RAM and 400MHz of CPU


You have a choice between a dynamic, cost-efficient model (usage-based) and a traditional model with fix pricing (reserved).
Dynamic cloudlets
Reserved cloudlets
With this model, the price is variable as you pay only for what you really use. For instance, during the day there is high load of your application (you pay more) and at night there is low load (you pay less).

The discount level is the total sum of all dynamic cloudlets in use per environment.
With this model, you pay a fixed price. You always pay for the configured (reserved) number of Cloudlets, even if you use fewer resources.
