To optimize compute costs for our customers, Hathora operates as a hybrid cloud. Hybrid cloud means that we can provision servers on both bare metal and public cloud. We run base (or committed) capacity on bare metal and for unexpected (or burst) capacity we use public cloud.

Hathora’s operating costs are significantly cheaper on bare metal than on public cloud and we pass on the savings to you! However, it does come at the cost of flexibility. We need approximately 2-3 weeks to order and set up the servers in our data centers. If you know that your game will require a certain amount of base capacity, we encourage you to reach out for commitment based pricing.

Hathora Compute Unit (HCU) is a normalized unit of compute power on Hathora Cloud used for measurement and pricing purposes. The number of HCUs your application consumes is driven by how long a compute resource is utilized and how many matches it can concurrently run (HCU = vCPU*MatchLength/Rooms Per Process). For a full breakdown of the HCU checkout our docs.
