Red Hat License Fee for Rackspace Cloud Servers Changing from Hourly to Monthly

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Blake Yeager | August 31, 2010 1:43 pm

The purpose of this post is to make you aware of a change that will occur in the coming months: Cloud Servers[1] customers will be billed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) instances on a monthly rather than hourly basis.    Due to changes in our subscription arrangements with Red Hat, we can no longer offer Cloud customers hourly billing for RHEL licenses.  Rackspace will begin charging our customers a monthly licensing fee, starting in September. This license fee will not be prorated.

What this means for our Rackspace Cloud Servers customers using RHEL:

Thank you for your understanding as we shift to monthly billing for RHEL users on Rackspace Cloud Servers.
