Predictable price based on nodes, not data
groundcover breaks the customary volume-based pricing model, allowing teams to scale away, at a fraction of the cost.
How We Bill
Our predictable pricing is based solely on the monthly average of the amount of Kubernetes Nodes (of any size or machine type) that are actively monitored by the groundcover eBPF sensor for logs, metrics, traces and events. You decide what to cover, and you can adjust at any time.
Frequently asked questions
What makes groundcover’s pricing model unique?
groundcover uses a unique in-cloud architecture that reduces the volumes of observability data being stored at the edge, without it ever leaving the node. This distributed and cost-effective architecture allows us to break the customary volume-based pricing models, offering a solution with predictable and fair pricing.
What is considered a node for billing?
A Kubernetes Node (of any size) that is actively monitored by the groundcover platform.
How does groundcover calculate the number of nodes I pay for each month?
We keep track of the number of monitored nodes in each Kubernetes cluster, and calculate the pricing based on the average number of nodes over the past month so you pay for your average node usage, and not for short-lived peaks.
Are there other billing options?
