Quota costs, billing, and limits
cloud.gov capacity is billed by quota. Quotas provide a not-to-exceed reservation of memory, compute, application routes and service instances.
Most packages are $0.0033 per MB reserved per day, with no limit except the quota you set.
There are two exceptions:
- Open data packages have a 2 GB of RAM per month limit.
- Sandboxes offer resource usage for free, but it is capped at 1 GB of RAM per month.
Usage quotas are set in advance. This helps you control the maximum amount that your team will spend, and helps us avoid over-provisioning resources that won’t be used.
Quotas are associated with and billed to a project IAA number or equivalent billing tag. Quotas are billed by the amount of memory reserved and tallied daily. A monthly bill might include 9 days at 1 GB of RAM, 11 days at 2 GB of RAM and 10 days at 4 GB of RAM. Quota capacity is a hard limit; unused capacity does not “roll over” month to month.
What quotas limit
Quotas limit the following resources:
- Number of application routes
- Amount of application memory
- Number of service instances
- Access to paid service plans
If a new application
push would exceed your organization’s quota, the request will fail with status code
400 and a message that describes the limit that would be exceeded.
Creating app APPLICATION in org ORG / space SPACE as USER… FAILED Server error, status code: 400, error code: 100007, message: You have exceeded the instance memory limit for your organization’s quota.
In this situation you have three options:
- Delete existing resources with
- Reconfigure individual existing application quotas and redeploy.
- Request a quota change by asking support. You can request an increase in number of routes or service instances with no cost impact. Increasing memory quota changes your costs (as described above).
