Databricks on AWS pricing comes in Standard, Standard with security add on, and Enterprise packages.
Each package has different price points for Data Engineering and Data Analytics workloads.
We also offer Basic tier as a low-cost option for Data Engineering workloads.
Sue runs a daily ETL job that prepares server logs data for analysis and model training. The job runs for 2 hours daily on 10 c3.4xlarge instances.
Sue’s team also analyzes data (run ad hoc queries) with notebooks for 4 hours on 5 memory-optimized r3.xlarge instance types.
Sue’s team also uses the Databricks Operational Security add-on.
A Databricks Unit (“DBU”) is a unit of processing capability per hour, billed on per-second usage. Databricks supports many instance types, see the full list and details here.
Our free trial and standard subscription includes both Data Engineering and Data Analytics packages. You don’t need to pick one or the other. Databricks charges you different prices depending on how you use the Apache Spark clusters. You can schedule robust and fast jobs via API or UI at $0.20 per DBU and use persistent clusters for running interactive analytics with notebooks at $0.40 per DBU.
Databricks Basic is currently in Private Preview. Please contact us if you are interested.
Usage is defined as running Apache Spark clusters, whether they are actively used or not.
An automated workload is defined as job that both starts and terminates the cluster on which it runs. For example, a workload may be triggered by the Databricks Job Scheduler which launches a new Apache Spark cluster solely for the job and automatically terminates the cluster after the job is complete.
An interactive workload is any workload that is not an automated workload, e.g., running a command within Databricks notebooks. These commands run on Apache Spark clusters that may persist until manually terminated. Multiple users can share a cluster for doing interactive analysis in a collaborative way.
Databricks Basic workloads are automated-only workloads. Please contact us for more details on using Databricks Basic.
Databricks Operational Security applies to both Data Engineering and Data Analytics, but is not available for Databricks Basic. When you choose to deploy Databricks with Databricks Operational Security, the additional charge applies to both Data Engineering and Data Analytics workloads.
Please contact us to add Databricks Operational Security to your subscription.
The 14-day free trial gives you access to all features in the Databricks for Data Engineering and Databricks for Data Analytics, except the Databricks Operational Security Package which is an add-on and Databricks Basic, which is in private preview.
