Gandi Announces New Pay-as-You-Go Model for Cloud Computing

Cloud Hosting and Domain Name Registrar Transforms Cloud VPS System Delivery for More Flexibility, Manageability

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) -  Gandi, a leading domain name registrar and cloud-hosting provider, today announced big improvements in the flexibility and operation of its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) products, with new use-based billing and management. The enhancements allow for increased flexibility and cost savings through volume discounts. The new system was designed and implemented by Gandi in response to customer demand, and will make it possible for users to quickly adjust IaaS systems with finer granularity, and precise controls over the cost of ownership. Billing for resources is now hourly, with low, per hour, per resource pricing, automated payment and integrated alerting.

"We are changing our billing to allow customers to pay for only what they use and make it easier to leverage the recent enhancements to our cloud systems," said Thomas Stocking, COO, Gandi U.S. "In the process, we simplified the entire infrastructure as a service offering."

Current Gandi customers need do nothing to benefit from the improved billing system, which Gandi designed with global customers and multiple currencies in mind. Resources including comprehensive blog entries and "Frequently Asked Questions" are available at The transfer to the new billing system from the existing reserve-a-resource model will be completed this week and available to all new and existing IaaS customers.
