Process and Pricing

Step 1. Request access

In order to use the LightOn Cloud service you have to request access. In the same form you have to select your preferred credit package. Pricing information can be found below.

Step 2. Account creation

If sufficient capacity exists we will send you all the necessary information to proceed with the payment and your account creation. You will then receive all the necessary information to start using the LightOn Cloud.

Step 3. Book a time-slot

After having your account, you are good to go! You can book a time-slot and start using LightOn Cloud. Upon booking, you will receive all necessary information to connect through Jupyter or SSH.

Step 4. Train your model

Using LightOn OPUs through simple libraries, you can train your models in no time. And if you need more help, our friendly community has your back. And if you want to buy more credits just let us know at support[at]lighton.io.

You may select between 2 different package types:

  • Pay-as-you-go: the pay-as-you-go option refers to the Medium and Large packages. In this case, you buy credits that you can later use to book time slots and use LightOn Cloud OPUs (LOCOs).
  • Dedicated: In the dedicated package, you have dedicated access to one specific LOCO (LightOn Cloud OPU) for one week, and an unlimited number of credits that are valid for the duration of this week.
