Managing costs in cloud computing is crucial, and Databricks is no exception. To help users estimate their Databricks costs, we’ve created the Databricks Cost Calculator. This tool allows you to calculate your estimated Databricks cost based on your data usage.
To estimate your Databricks cost, we use the following formula:
Estimated Cost = Data Usage (in GB) x Cost per GB
- Data Usage (in GB) is the amount of data processed or stored in gigabytes.
- Cost per GB is the cost rate per gigabyte.
How to Use
Using the Databricks Cost Calculator is simple:
- Enter the data usage in gigabytes (GB) in the input field.
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- The estimated cost will be displayed below.
Let’s say you have a data usage of 100 GB, and the cost per GB on Databricks is $0.05. Enter 100 in the input field and click “Calculate.” The estimated cost would be:
Estimated Cost = 100 GB x $0.05/GB = $5.00
