Pricing.

The sustainability discount. Breakthrough energy efficiency provides uniform cost effectiveness across all our cloud regions.

Using up to 50% less power, alongside a denser, more efficient hosted environment, affords uniquely low-cost access to powerful AI clusters. Delivering 1, 3, and 5 year TCOs that are substantially lower than on-premise, legacy CSPs, or even specialist GPU clouds.

Managed metal GPU cloud pricing

Pricing for cloud based managed metal GPU instances. Pricing shown is for month-by-month consumption, in USD. SMC provides further discounts based on committed use, volume and level of prepayment. Reach out to our sales team to learn more.

GPU Cloud Pricing FAQ

  • Do you offer on-demand consumption?

    On-demand or per hour usage is on our roadmap for future release, but is not something that we offer today. Customers can reserve managed metal clusters in monthly increments, over multi-year commitments.

  • How does billing work?

    Approved and on-boarded accounts receive bills for consumption based on contracted capacity.

  • Do you offer custom pricing?

    Yes. Pricing shown on this page are our reference prices for monthly consumption without commitment. Variable discounts are available for committed use over longer terms, with additional incentives provided for accounts that choose to prepay for a portion of their contracted capacity.

  • Is connectivity included?

    A minimum 1gbps/1gbps IP transit is provided with each cluster. For higher capacity ingress and egress, customised connectivity solutions are available, which may incur additional costs, depending on the engineered solution.

    In addition to IP transit, SMC provides a range of options to cross-connect into the public cloud.

  • Tell me more about the 'sustainability discount'

    We use this phrase to describe, in simple terms, that sustainability really does cost less.

    Energy costs, power consumption and hardware efficiency has a material impact on the economics of operating AI infrastructure. SMC's technology-based approach to efficiency means that we have the ability to use substantially less power, and data centre space, that other clouds.

    As a consequence, our operating costs are lower, and we pass these savings onto you.

  • How can I sign up?

    The first step to coming on board is filling out our enquire now form with information about you and your needs. Within a day or two a team member will be in contact with you to arrange a scoping call.

    Once we have an idea of your requirements and fit for our infrastructure, we can arrange a proof-of-concept trial phase of an SMC cluster or nodes as required.

    With commercials and a solution signed off, onboarding commences, subject to the availability of capacity.

    The end to end process - from contact to onboarding - can conclude within 2-3 weeks.

  • Do you have H100 capacity?

    SMC has cloud regions built or under build in Singapore, Australia, India, Thailand, with Europe coming in the second half of 2024.

    All AZs in these regions feature our HyperCube high-efficiency hosting infrastructure.

    Each region is capable of hosting multi-thousand single node clusters within the same network fabric, based on customer requirements.

    H100 & L40S infrastructure is being installed in these regions, however with current market dynamics, demand is high, and so we work closely with customers to capacity plan for current and current and future infrastructure.
