Pricing

The Anthos Config Management fee applies to all Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) clusters that run Policy Controller. Anthos Config Management accrues a fee of $0.10 per GKE cluster per hour irrespective of cluster size or topology. The Anthos Config Management fee does not apply to Anthos clusters. The Anthos Config Management fee is no longer charged once you turn off Policy Controller.

Config Controller uses a GKE cluster as the underlying infrastructure, and you are billed for the Anthos Config Management fee and GKE clusters according to GKE's pricing, until the clusters are deleted.

Anthos customers are not billed the Anthos Config Management fee. Anthos Config Management is already included in the Anthos pricing.
