Instances (Number of processes)

The number of containers that will run your application. Adding more containers provides high availability, more CPU power to increase the throughput per second of the application and also improves the latency of high traffic applications.

Frequently asked questions


    Yes, and just like credit card you will be charged before your containers will be provisioned. You will need to log in each time to pay your invoice.

  • Am I charged when I enter a credit card?

    Your card is charged the first time you provision an instance on NodeChef, this charge is considered as credit towards your account. We only charge you again when your credit runs out and you are still running Apps on NodeChef

  • How am I billed for my instances?

    All containers on your account are billed hourly. When you provision your first App on NodeChef, your card is charged an amount equal to the expected monthly cost. This serves as credit to your account. You can scale up and down or even add new containers anytime. When your have exhausted your credit, you will then be billed to cover the current and expected monthly costs.

  • Do you charge for stopped app containers?

    Yes, app and database containers in a stopped state continue to reserve dedicated system resources (RAM, SSD storage) and therefore incur charges until you destroy the containers. If you wish to no longer accumulate charges, please Delete the containers as follows: From the dashboard, navigate to deployments > deployed apps. Find your app listed under the displayed table and use the destroy option to delete your app. All billing obligations for this app will be stopped immediately.

  • Do you offer refunds?

    No, we do not offer refunds. If there are extenuating circumstances, please open up a ticket with our support team.
