Consumption Based Pricing

Pricing Example 01

In June, your cluster has a total of 100GB of data going in and a total of 200GB of data going out. At any given point, the cluster uses 100GB of storage. The cluster is in Google Cloud region us-east1.

Data in charges:

100GB x $0.11/GB = $11.00

Data out charges:

200GB x $0.11/GB = $22.00

Data retained charges:

100GB x $0.10/GB-month = $10.00

Total charges

$11.00 + $22.00 + $10.00 = $43.00

Pricing Example 02

In June, you are running a cluster that streams data in and data out at a rate of 1MB/sec with a 7-day retention policy. The cluster is in Google Cloud region us-east1.

Data in charges:

1MB/sec x 86,400 sec/day x 30 days --> 2,531GB x $0.11/GB = $278.41

Data out charges:

1MB/sec x 86,400 sec/day x 30 days --> 2,531GB x $0.11/GB = $278.41

Data retained charges:

1MB/sec x 86,400 sec/day x 7 days x replication (3) --> 1772GB x $0.10/GB-month = $177.20

Total charges

$278.41 + $278.41 + $177.20 = $734.02

*Prices vary by cloud region.
