This document explains Cloud Filestore pricing details.

Pricing overview

Cloud Filestore pricing is based on the following elements:

  • Service tier: Whether your instance uses Standard or Premium tier.
  • Instance size: The size of your instance. The minimum Standard tier instance size is 1 terabyte (TB) and the minimum Premium tier instance size is 2.5 TB. The maximum instance size for either tier is 63.9 TB.
  • Region: The location where your instance is provisioned.

Instance pricing

Pricing depends on the service tier and region where the instance is provisioned. You are charged for a Cloud Filestore instance in 1-second increments, based on the instance's provisioned capacity in GB. The table below shows the price per GB by hour (3,600 seconds) or by month.

Charges are incurred as follows:

  • Pricing is rounded up to the nearest second.
  • Your project starts incurring Cloud Filestore charges when you create an instance. Whether you use the instance or not, you are charged based on the provisioned capacity.

Network pricing

There is no charge for ingress to Cloud Filestore. There is a charge for egress from Cloud Filestore when network traffic leaves the zone of the Cloud Filestore instance.

You may be charged for network egress from other Google Cloud Platform services into Cloud Filestore, such as from Compute Engine to Cloud Filestore.

Pricing examples

To calculate the per-hour cost of an instance, multiply the provisioned capacity with the unit price for the instance location.

  • Calculating the costs for a 2 TB Standard tier instance in us-west1-b: The unit cost for a Standard tier instance in the Oregon region is $0.000274 per GB per hour, or approximately $0.20 per GB per month. The hourly cost for the instance is 2,048 * $0.000274, which comes to $0.56, or approximately $408.80 per month.

  • Calculating the costs for a 10 TB Premium tier instance in europe-west1-b: The unit cost for a Premium tier instance in the Belgium region is $0.000453 per GB per hour, or approximately $0.33 per GB per month. The hourly cost for the instance is 10,240 * $0.000453, which comes to $4.64, or approximately $3,387.20 per month.
