*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, E5, X9, and A1 instances support resource-based pricing. The OCPU and the memory resources are priced separately, and customers need to purchase the Memory SKU along with the OCPU SKU. The memory to OCPU ratio for VM instances can range from 1 GB per OCPU to 64 GB per 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.
