If you have defined virtual machine instance sizes, you can apply a price for each VM instance size for the pay-as-you-go allocation models of organization vDC. The price that you define for each VM instance size is applied to the compute rates.


If you do not want to use the default VM instance sizes, you must have defined your custom VM instance sizes.
