Cost model: pay per use

What is “pay per use”? Cloud Computing from Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google GCP has an on-demand billing model and usage costs. In a nutshell, it means paying only for what you consume.

A practical example would be a server turned on only during business hours. Instead of paying a fixed fee for the entire month, you would only pay for the hours that the server was actually connected. This means flexibility and savings. In addition to the processing cost involved with the server in the air, costs such as data transfer and data storage costs must be taken into account.
