Development and testing lab pricing

Development and QA teams that work on building new applications and adding features to existing applications running on-premise require pre-production development and test environments.

Ravello pricing is usage based. Development and QA teams pay only for the resources consumed. Consider an enterprise e-commerce application environment. The environment consists of 9 VMs running on VMware.

  • 1 virtual appliance - a load balancer (2 vCPU, 4GB RAM, 50GB storage)
  • 3 web servers (2 vCPU, 4GB RAM, 50GB storage each)
  • 3 app servers (2 vCPU, 4GB RAM, 50GB storage each)
  • 2 DB servers (4 vCPU, 16GB RAM, 500GB storage each)

Ravello pricing is based on the aggregate resources of the application. In the case of this application: 2+3*2+3*2+2*4 = 22 vCPU, 4+3*4+3*4+2*16 = 60GB RAM, 50+3*50+3*50+2*500 = 1,350GB storage.

The hourly compute price of this application is $2.06. The hourly volume storage price is $0.46. There is an additional $0.12/GB/month library cost, and for this application it will be up to monthly $162 in library cost (if all 1,350GB storage provisioned is used).

Thus, the monthly cost of a development or test environment of this 9-VM complex application is:

Uptime Compute Volume storage Library storage Total
10 hours X 5 days a week
(200 hours per month)
$412/month $93/month up to $162/month $667/month
24 hours X 7 days a week
(732 hours per month)
$1,508/month $340.20/month up to $162/month $2,010.20/month
