Pricing overview

Memorystore for Memcached pricing depends on the region where the Memcached instance is provisioned and is composed of the following charges:

  • vCPUs / cores per node.

  • Memory per node: The amount of memory provisioned for each node in your cluster.

When provisioning a Memorystore for Memcached instance, you select the number of vCPUs (cores) and memory (GB) needed for a node, and specify the number of nodes you want in the instance.

The total hourly cost of an instance is calculated based on the total number of vCPUs and total memory provisioned for an instance. The total number of vCPUs and total memory of an instance is equal to the vCPUs and Memory for one node multiplied by the number of nodes in the instance.

Pricing examples

Memcached instance configuration Hourly cost calculation
Nodes:
  • 1 node located in Iowa (us-central1)
Per node:
  • 1 vCPU
  • 1 GB
Total vCPU = 1
Total Memory = 1 GB
Total price per hour:
(1 vCPU * $0.050) + (1 GB * $0.0044) = $0.054 per hour
Nodes:
  • 4 nodes located in Iowa (us-central1)
Per node:
  • 4 vCPUs
  • 25 GB
Total vCPU = 16
Total Memory = 100 GB
Total price per hour:
(16 vCPU * $0.050) + (100 GB * $0.0089) = $1.69 per hour
