Worker CPU

Each worker requires CPU and Memory to perform its task. Each application process may spin up multiple workers simultaneously at different consumption rates of MEM and CPU, and your site will be idle at times with Zero workers active. We monitor the numbers of a workers, and the memory limit of each worker while operating, in per second increments. Higher memory workers cost more than low memory workers.

  • Billing Formula(s)
  • MEMLimit: [256mb, 512mb, 768mb, 1024mb, 2048mb]
  • ((MEMLimit $ Rate) * (# of Workers)) / sec

Database (Aurora Serverless)

Think of a database call from beginning to end - the request is made (Input), the database processes the request using CPU and RAM (ACU Unit), and the response is sent back (Output), and all the while the database requires disk (Storage) to maintain state. Some queries need very little CPU/RAM (1 ACU Unit) while some complex queries may need a lot of CPU/RAM (16 ACU Units) to process, additionally many queries may be happening simultaneously, or there may be periods of inactivity where the database is never called.

As your database capacity is automatically scaled up or down, ACUs are added or removed.

  • Billing Formula(s)
  • #(ACUs used per Hour) * $(Rate/ACU) +
  • #(I/O operations / 1 Million) * $(Rate/Million) +
  • #(Usage in GB) * $(Rate)

Support

Support costs money. Typically you pay for it with inflated prices on the goods/service - and low support users typically subsidize the cost of high support users. We have elected to not follow that paradigm and therefore we are currently offering 2 levels of paid support.

Support plans are per Account - All new accounts get Organization Support free for the first 30 days.

Managed DevOps

Whereas Support cases are user initiated, DevOps cases are responses/actions driven by alerting and monitoring of your site. A DevOps agreement with NorthStack frees you from the vital but menial tasks of monitoring and alert resolution. Uptime and functional performance checks based on common and user-defined parameters will alert our DevOps desk for response and the Runbook guided resolution.

DevOps plans are attached to and billed per production site.

  • Billing Formula(s)
  • $(Plan Price) + $(Extras) per Month per Site

What defines a Status Check? An uptime check is a HTTP request to your application's status page from 1 or more geogrphical regions. A passed uptime check will be a 200 response.

What defines a Functional Check? A functional check is a HTTP request (GET or POST) that takes some specific action on the site, expects a specific response, and the process is measured for speed and performance.

Staging/Dev Sites

Staging/Development sites are billed in the same manner of production sites however there are platform controls in place to limit the amount of resources consumed on staging/dev sites to keep your costs as low as possible. As your production workload spend increases you will earn Staging Site Credits (SSC) that will be applied at the end of the billing month, offsetting some or all of the cost.

The redemption value of a SSC is $0 and may only be utilized in the month it is earned.

Staging / Dev Site Credits

At least $0/mo Production Spend
1 SSC
Every $0/mo Production Spend
+1 SSC
