This tool helps you estimate the cost of using Kyma on your website.

## Kyma Cost Estimator

This Kyma cost estimator helps you calculate the expected cost of running a Kyma cluster based on the resources you specify. It considers the number of nodes, the amount of vCPUs, RAM, storage, and network transfer for each node, and the expected uptime.

### How to Use

- Number of Nodes: Enter the total number of nodes in your Kyma cluster.
- vCPUs per Node: Enter the number of virtual CPUs assigned to each node.
- RAM per Node (GB): Enter the amount of RAM in gigabytes assigned to each node.
- Storage per Node (GB): Enter the amount of storage in gigabytes assigned to each node.
- Network Transfer per Month (GB): Enter the amount of data transfer in gigabytes per month.
- Expected Uptime (%): Enter the expected uptime as a percentage.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the estimated monthly cost.

### Calculation Explanation

The calculator works as follows:

- Calculates the cost per node based on the formula:
`costPerNode = (vcpus * 0.05) + (ram * 0.01) + (storage * 0.02) + (networkTransfer * 0.001)`

- Multiplies the cost per node by the number of nodes and adjusts for uptime:
`totalCost = costPerNode * nodeCount * (uptime / 100)`

- Displays the result as the estimated monthly cost.

### Limitations

This estimator provides an estimate based on assumed pricing for resources. Actual costs might vary depending on specific provider pricing, discounts, and other factors not accounted for in this simple calculation model.
