License accounting models:

  1. The accounting is done in hourly cycle. The fee for the license is included in the instance, according to our price list available at: https://www.oktawave.com/pricing.html.
  2. Calculated for the whole month, regardless of when the license was purchased. If instance is run only for a moment in a given month, the entire amount for license is calculated. If the server in a given month was not powered on at all, user won't be billed.
  3. Calculated for the whole month, regardless of when the license was purchased. If instance is run only for a moment in a given month, the entire amount for license is calculated. If the server in a given month was not powered on at all, user won't be billed. If the class of an  instance is increased, then the extra will be charged only for the difference in price between the new and the old license. Reducing class of an instance has impact on the price of a license starting from the next billing period.
  4. The whole month amount is accounted, regardless of when the instance is running and whether it is enabled or not.
