Not included

You’re responsible for operating and securing your own code. You’re responsible for complying with your agency’s requirements, which typically includes getting an ATO for your system.

Estimate your monthly cost

Monthly costs are based on the package fee (i.e., Prototyping, FISMA Low, FISMA Moderate) plus memory usage. Usage costs are based on the amount of memory (RAM) that you reserve for your system ($105/GB RAM per month).

Most cloud.gov customers typically reserve 2–8 GB of memory to cover multiple applications across development, staging, and production environments.

Example

Suppose you have 2 apps that each need 512 MB (0.5 GB) memory. Each app needs 1 instance in dev, 1 instance in staging, and 2 in production. The apps require data — nothing sensitive — so a FISMA Low production package will be adequate for hosting.

Access Fee

FISMA Low $1667

Memory Usage Cost

[ (2 x 0.5 GB) + (4 x 0.5 GB) + (2 x 0.5 GB) ] x $105 $420

Total monthly cost $2087
