Are we charged for spinning up servers for a few minutes

In Production, I use 1-5 web servers to handle the load of all clients. However sometimes its good to test how an application will scale.

In my particular use case, I’m looking to spin up 50+ servers and hit them really really hard. These servers would only be up for 10 minutes to an hour and then brought down.

Given cloud66’s Pricing model, would we be charged those machines be charged for the entire month or just for the time they were active?
