Benefits of pooling quotas

One quota for everything

Network Transfer Pool works with all of our current and future public cloud services including Cloud Servers and Object Storage. Every service with an included transfer quota contributes to the total transfer pool.

Flexible to use

No hourly rate limits, no sudden excess charges. Make use of your full transfer pool at any time and add to the pool with every new deployment. All accumulated quota is also retained even if the resource is deleted.

Save on networking costs

Never again pay for excess charges while part of your quota sits unused. Network Transfer Pool allows your transfer heavy Cloud Servers or Object Storage utilise quotas afforded by other resources that are less active in network usage. Make full use of your transfer quotas regardless of your use case.

Immediately usable

No need to wait for the transfer pool to accumulate. Full combined transfer pool is usable straight from the deployment while the monthly quota is calculated in the background.

How it works

It just does!

Group 3

Single total quota

All transfer quotas included with your public cloud services, such as Simple plan Cloud Servers and Object Storage, in all data centres are combined in the account-wide transfer pool.

No hourly limits

You can use all of your UpCloud services exactly as you please, including network transfer, with no hourly limits or throttling. Find out more at our documentation.

No quota abandoned

If a resource instance exists for less than a full calendar month, it will contribute proportionally according to the number of hours it existed. All accumulated quota is usable throughout that month even if the contributing services are deleted.

Account-wide

Network Transfer Pool operates on the account level and combines all transfer quotas including services deployed by any subaccounts. All subaccount users are also able to benefit from the total quota.

All-inclusive

All existing public cloud services contribute to the Network Transfer Pool regardless of whether they are running or shut down. Every service which includes transfer quota in the plan contributed for the duration of their lifetime.

Monthly billing

At the turn of the calendar month, the total earned quota from all resources is counted towards your total outbound transfer usage. Any outbound network transfer exceeding the combined Network Transfer Pool is then billed at $0.01 per GB and the pool reset.

Frequently asked questions

Will I get throttled after using up the whole quota?

Not at all! You can still benefit from the full 1 Gbit/s connection on your cloud services. You may also deploy new resources to accumulate new quota. The excess transfer is only billed at the end of the calendar month giving you a lot of flexibility in your transfer usage.

Does unused quota carry over?

All quota accumulated in the Network Transfer Pool is retained until the end of the calendar month at which point the total usage is subtracted from the pool. Afterwards, both network usage and the transfer pool are reset for the next month.

Group 27 Copy 3

What happens if I delete and redeploy my Cloud Server mid-month?

You will be able to benefit from a full monthly transfer quota, almost as if nothing changed. All quota accumulated before deletion is retained in the Network Transfer Pool and the new Cloud Server will begin to accumulate quota after deployment.

Can the Network Transfer Pool be disabled?

Network Transfer Pool is applied to all UpCloud users for their benefit and there is no option to opt-out. If you wish to track network usage independently between resources, you can do so at your UpCloud Control Panel or via the UpCloud API.
