UsageBilling UnitMetering Details

Reserved Compute Unit

A Provisioned Capacity “Reserved Compute Unit” (RCU) is the smallest deployment unit of Serverless Computation (Includes 3 replicas). Pricing is based on an hourly rate and is committed for a one (1) year term.

Reserved Compute Units are available, committed and billed 24 x 7 for a one (1) year term, commencing when the RCU is created.

Hourly Compute Units

A “Hourly Compute Unit” (HCU) is the smallest deployment unit of Serverless Computation (Includes 3 replicas). It is priced on a per hour basis on a non-committed basis.

Hourly Compute Units are charged in one hour increments for any hour in which database read or write operations are performed. If a customer allows auto-scaling, it is the amount in excess of any Reserved Compute Units required to support a customer’s operations.

Storage

“Data Storage” means all data stored into the Database including the data, indexes and metadata.

Storage is calculated based on logical storage consumption. Data Storage is measured in GB per month, using the maximum data stored in the given month for the usage calculation. You are not billed extra for standard backups of your data (It is included in the base storage costs).

Data Transfer

“Data Transfer” means the transfer of Customer Data out of the database. Billable units and pricing vary depending on whether the Data Transfer occurs within the same region of a cloud provider network (“Data Transfer - Same Region”), across regions within the same cloud provider network (“Data Transfer - Cross Region Within Cloud Provider Network”), or leaves the cloud provider network over the internet (“Data Transfer - Internet”).

Data Transfer charges are measured in GB.

Optional FeaturesDescriptionMetering Details

Storage Optimized Compute Units

“Storage Optimized Compute Units (CU’s)”provides additional RAM/Local disk than the Compute Units outlined above.

The referenced price is incremental to the pricing for 1) Reserved Compute Units, 2) Hourly Compute Units, 3) Dedicated Reserved Compute Units and 4) Dedicated Hourly Compute Units. Reserved Compute Units are available, committed and billed 24 x 7 for the contract term regardless of activity once deployed.

Private endpoint

Creating a “Private Endpoint” allows users to securely connect applications and third party SaaS offerings to Astra DB.

Users are billed at a fixed rate per hour plus data transfer charges per GB. Data transfer charges using private endpoints are for the transfer of Customer Data into and out of the database. Cloud providers will also bill for use of private endpoint capabilities.

Dedicated Reserved Compute Units

“Dedicated Reserved Compute Units” provides single tenant customer compute resources. Pricing is based on an hourly rate and is committed for a one (1) year term.

Dedicated Reserved Compute Units are available, committed and billed 24 x 7 for a one (1) year term, commencing when the dedicated RCU is created.

Dedicated Hourly Compute Units

“Dedicated Hourly Compute Units” provides single tenant customer compute resources. Non-dedicated hourly compute units may be multi-tenant.

Hourly Compute Units are charged in one hour increments for any hour in which database read or write operations are performed. If a customer allows auto-scaling, it is the amount in excess of any Reserved Compute Units required to support a customer’s operations.

Dedicated Compute Region

“Dedicated Compute Region” provides customer isolation at the cloud provider region level for all databases within that region.

Dedicated Compute Region require an annual commitment but credits are consumed on an hourly basis over the year. Only one dedicated private network is required per cloud provider region.
