Confidential VM pricing

Confidential VM incurs additional costs on top of Compute Engine pricing. For full details on Compute Engine pricing, see All pricing.

Using Confidential VM does not affect contractual discounts that are applied to underlying Compute Engine services.

For Compute Engine, disk size, machine type memory, and network usage are calculated in gigabytes (GB), where 1 GB is 230 bytes. This unit of measurement is also known as a gibibyte (GiB).

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