Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Whenever we want to find the actual costing, we have to send an email to Databricks, so having the information available on the internet would be helpful.""I do not exactly know the costs, but one of our clients pays between $100 USD and $200 USD monthly.""Licensing on site I would counsel against, as on-site hardware issues tend to really delay and slow down delivery.""We find Databricks to be very expensive, although this improved when we found out how to shut it down at night."
