Estimate your pay-as-you-go pricing
- Find the number of private cloud instances (e.g. VMware) on the highest day of usage in a month
- Find the number of public cloud instances* (e.g. Azure) on the highest day of usage in a month
- Enter the details into the tool below
See the text below this estimator for a more in-depth explanation of cost estimation.
*Public cloud pricing
Because public cloud produces many more line-items, we charge public cloud differently. Public cloud instances are charged at 1/5th the rate of the private cloud rate.

0K CUPR tier
What's a CUPR?
CUPR stands for Consolidated Usage Peak Records. This metric comes into play by identifying the day in a given month with the highest usage across all platforms like Azure, VMware, and so on. But how do we get there? By looking at each unique combination of Account, Service, and Instance. Each one of these unique combinations is counted as a single CUPR.
Why Should You Care?
The CUPR count on this peak day will significantly influence your monthly bill. Simply put: higher CUPR counts equate to higher costs. However, the calculation isn't straightforward; the type of cloud instance also matters.
Breaking Down the Costs
Cloud Type Weightage
Public clouds like Azure generate more instance line items in your billing data. To keep it fair when calculating CUPRs, we divide the public cloud instance count by 5.
Your bill kicks off with a minimum of 1000 CUPRs. After that, we've got incremental tiers—2000, 4000, and so on.
Let's assume you have 1000 instances running on VMware and 3000 instances on Azure during your peak usage day. To convert these instances to CUPRs, remember that Azure instances are divided by 5. So, your VMware instances contribute 1000 to the CUPR count and Azure contributes 600 (3000 instances / 5). Your total for the day would be 1600 CUPRs, placing you in the 2000 CUPR billing tier.
As a general rule of thumb, you can estimate your Consolidated Usage Peak Records as follows:
× [avg. n/o services per customer]
× [avg. n/o unique instances per service]
If, on average, your customers consume 4 different services, and you have a 100 customers with on average 6 Unique Instances (VMs, License Bundles, etc.) your estimated CUPR will be 2 400. However, this should be considered as a very rough estimate. Actual numbers are very much dependent on your specific use case. You can also fill in our onboarding questionaire here. We will then come back to you with a CUPR estimation.
Absolutely! We have long-term experience with advising and implementing cloud metering and billing solutions. Feel free to contact us if you want us to assist you in any way.
You'll receive your Exivity bill every 3rd of the month for the previous month. Payment is due within 30 days, and needs to be done via wire transfer. Credit card payments are not supported at this time.
We've got your back! Just drop us an e-mail, and we'll assist you with initial estimations. Also, you're allowed to run a 1-month free trial, which will allow you to better understand your Consolidation Peak Usage. But don't worry - you'll always pay a fair price. You can also fill in our onboarding questionnaire here. We will then come back to you with a CUPR estimation.
