IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

Make runtime and containers free monthly allowance consistent


Currently, the free monthly allowances are as follow:

Runtime: 375 GB-hour
Containers: 365 GB-hour

I think they should be both the same (e.g. 375) to be less confusing.

Also, is it just me or 365 GB-hour doesn't cover 512 MB for a whole month with 31 days (0.5 x 24 x 31 = 372)? In that case, this is not what the pricing section of the website says...
