Anthos Service Mesh pricing

Pricing for non-Anthos customers

Anthos Service Mesh is available as a standalone service to access telemetry, dashboards, and Mesh CA for clusters on Google Cloud. If you want to use Anthos Service Mesh on premises or on other clouds, you must subscribe to Anthos.

Anthos Service Mesh is available for free until June 2021. Once billing begins, each Anthos Service Mesh client costs $0.0006945 per hour, approximately $0.50 per client per month. Google APIs determine how you are billed. To use Anthos Service Mesh as a standalone service, don't enable the Anthos API in your project when you install Anthos Service Mesh.

Anthos Service Mesh clients include:

  • Google Kubernetes Engine: Anthos Service Mesh enabled Pod instances
  • Compute Engine: Anthos Service Mesh enabled virtual machines (VMs)

If a deployment has more than one replica running, such as a service that has scaled to 3 instances, each instance is billed at the billable rate.

Pricing for Anthos customers

Anthos customers are not billed separately for Anthos Service Mesh because it is already included in the Anthos pricing.

Alternatively, a pay-as-you-go billing option is available for Anthos on Google Cloud only. For more information, see the Anthos Pricing guide.
