Triton Pricing Comparison

Triton Means Big Savings

How is it that Triton wins on pricing? Our cloud runs on containers, while AWS's cloud runs on virtual machines. With Triton running containers natively on bare metal, you eliminate the need to pay for inefficient virtual machine hosts.

Triton vs. AWS

For comparison we’re showing here the cost of running a scalable web app in containers. The monthly cost of running on AWS is $2,400 – almost twice the cost of running on Triton.

The requirement to run containers on VMs on AWS results in inefficient utilization of compute resources and adds significant costs. With Triton, you only pay for the container resources you use.

Lifecycle Management Simplicity

In addition to reducing costs, eliminating the need to run container workloads on virtual machines removes unnecessary overhead and complexity.

Lifecycle TaskTriton's Container Native ArchitectureAWS' VM Based Architecture
Deploy a minimal site Each container on its own g4-highcpu-128M instance for maximum performance, reliability, and flexibility All containers packed in a single t2.medium VM instance
Scale up for live traffic and for redundancy Resize instances without restarting for convenience and deploy additional instances Redeploy all containers into new VMs, risking downtime or data loss
Scale for a big event Resizing or adding instances is easy Provision new VMs and redistribute containers
Scale back down to "normal" Costs go down as you remove or downsize containers Removing or downsizing containers does not reduce costs until VMs are also reduced
