ANSWER: Red Hat Cloud Suite subscription pricing is based on the number of socket pairs in each server that hosts virtual machines (VMs). Each of these socket pairs requires one subscription of Red Hat Cloud Suite.
Like all Red Hat offerings, there are no costly, upfront license costs. Instead, there is an annual subscription based on the level of support you need. The Red Hat Cloud Suite subscription includes product access, technical support, software updates, hardware and software certifications, and open source software assurance from Red Hat.
Red Hat Cloud Suite subscription pricing is available with premium or standard support. In North America, a premium subscription costs US$30,000 per socket pair, while a standard subscription costs US$20,000 per socket pair.
