FAQ

What is a Worker-vCPU?

Nodes which are running customer’s workload are called worker nodes. vCPUs which are attached to these worker nodes are Worker-vCPUs.

What has changed with the new price model?
  • We have completely new Service Levels, replacing the old ones (Standard, Professional and Premium).

  • The pricing has been reworked and simplified. Now only Worker-vCPUs are counted, there is no cluster fee anymore.

  • Isovalent Enterprise for Cilium - Basic feature set is included in the price, it’s not an add-on anymore.

  • The "VSHN Certified Service Provider (VCSP)" idea is gone, replaced by well-defined supported Cloud Service Providers (CSP).

  • The pricing is public and even features a nice price calculator.

I’m an existing customer, can I switch?

Yes. We intend to switch all current customers to this new price model. Please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
