Compute Engine pricing

This page lists all the pricing for Compute Engine.

Compute Engine charges for usage based on the following price sheet. A bill is sent out at the end of each billing cycle, providing a sum of Google Cloud charges. Prices on this page are listed in U.S. dollars (USD).

For Compute Engine, disk size, machine type memory, and network usage are calculated in JEDEC binary gigabytes (GB), or IEC gibibytes (GiB), where 1 GiB is 230 bytes. Similarly, 1 TiB is 240 bytes, or 1024 JEDEC GBs.

If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

You can also find pricing information with the following options:

General-purpose machine types

N4 machine types

If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.
Spot prices are dynamic and can change up to once every 30 days, but provide discounts of 60-91% off of the corresponding on-demand price for most machine types and GPUs. Spot prices also provide smaller discounts for local SSDs and A3 machine types. For more information, see the Spot VMs documentation.

N4 standard machine types

The following table shows the calculated costs for standard predefined machine types in the N4 machine family. The vCPUs and memory from each of these machine types are billed by their individual predefined vCPU and memory prices, but these tables provide the cost that you can expect using a specific machine type.

Standard machine types have 4 GB of memory per vCPU.

N4 custom vCPUs and memory

Custom machine types let you set a specific number of vCPUs and GB of memory for your instances to match the needs of your workload. Custom machine types save you the cost of running on a larger and more expensive machine type if your application does not require all of the resources provided by that machine type.
