Prices for current images are retrived from Joyent's public listing. There are some packages which joyent no longer lists prices for. These prices are either coppied from earlier data, or assumed based on the most similar current package. These prices are stored in

All prices are for open-source servers (smartOS, Ubuntu, etc). The prices of your induvidual machines will be higher than listed for licensed servers (windows, zeus, etc).
