I need about X concurrent VMs. How much will that cost?

How large would each concurrent VM be?  Would they be running 100% of the time or just occasionally?  Would you be spinning up single-use (AKA ephemeral) VMs or running static VMs to mimic bare metal hosts?   Assuming 2 cores and ~8GB of RAM, you’d be looking at $150-$200/VM in our cloud bundles. You can get even lower as you continue to scale up.  Of course, those prices are for concurrent VMs running at 100% capacity.  Because we provide dedicated private clouds, you get all the benefit of thin provisioning, so if a VM isn’t using its full set of allocated resources it will give them back to the pool.
