New Lower Prices
Lunacloud has also reviewed its pricing, applicable from 12th May 2016 to the 2nd generation Cloud Servers. Prices are applicable to both regions: EU West and EU Central. RAM, CPU and Storage resources have now lower prices, which depending on the configuration of each Cloud Server, will reduce cost from 29% (0.50 GB RAM, 1 vCPU, 10 GB Storage) to 40% (96 GB RAM, 8 vCPU, 2000 GB Storage). The entry point Cloud Server with 0.50 GB RAM, 1 vCPU and 10 GB Storage is now 0,0110 € per hour, of 7.92 € per month.
