I'm looking for a chess cloud engine service where I only have to pay for the time I use.
I thought chessbase.com provides that, but you have to get a premium membership first (as far as I understand). Nextchessmove.com and chessify.me require subscription as well.
Is anybody aware of an alternative that just bills per time used?

  • You could download an engine and rent cloud CPU/GPU. I know Amazon rents CPU per hour and Google rents GPU but I do not know how they bill.

1 Answer 1


Lots of them let you pay zero per use.

Download your own program and you only pay once.

  • -1 because the advantage of cloud engines is that the hardware is more powerful.
