Compute Pricing

To make it easier to compare pricing across cloud service providers, Oracle web pages show both vCPU (virtual CPUs) prices and OCPU (Oracle CPU) prices for products with compute-based pricing. The products themselves, provisioning in the portal, billing, etc. continue to use OCPU (Oracle CPU) units. OCPUs represent physical CPU cores. Most CPU architectures, including x86, execute two threads per physical core, so 1 OCPU is the equivalent of 2 vCPUs for x86-based compute. The per-hour OCPU rate customers are billed at is therefore twice the vCPU price since they receive two vCPUs of compute power for each OCPU, unless it's a sub-core instance such as preemptible instances. Additional details supporting the difference between OCPU vs. vCPU can be accessed here.

*Notes:

  • 1 OCPU on x86 CPU Architecture (AMD and Intel) = 2 vCPUs
  • 1 OCPU on Arm CPU Architecture (Ampere) = 1 vCPU
  • The minimum unit of provisioning starts from 1 OCPU on both X86 (Intel and AMD) and Arm (Ampere) processors.
  • All compute instances use boot volumes as their system disk. Additional storage and boot volumes are billed at the standard block volumes service pricing. Note, that this is in addition to the price of the compute instance.
  • E3, E4, X9, A1 SKUs will support resource-based pricing. The OCPU and the memory resources are priced separately and customers will need to purchase the Memory SKU along with the OCPU SKU. The memory to OCPU ratio for VM Instances can range from 1GB/OCPU upto 64 GB/OCPU.
  • Unused Capacity reservations are priced at 85% of the price of regular instances. This discount is applied in addition to other discounts, such as UCM negotiated rates.
  • Preemptible instances are priced at 50% of the price of regular instances. This discount is applied in addition to other discounts, such as UCM negotiated rates. See the product documentation for supported shapes.
