Ubuntu Advantage pricing

Canonical’s cloud pricing is now based on availability zones, which we define as an isolated part of your cloud infrastructure, protected from failures elsewhere. Availability zones allow you to design and grow your OpenStack cloud without counting the number of physical nodes in production or having to upgrade your Ubuntu Advantage contract.

Ubuntu Advantage includes everything you need for your cloud: support, management, an unlimited number of Ubuntu guests, and Swift or Ceph storage options, all for one competitive price.

If availability zones don’t apply to your enterprise, pricing is instead based on the number of datacentres.
