We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We find Databricks to be very expensive, although this improved when we found out how to shut it down at night."
"The solution uses a pay-per-use model with an annual subscription fee or package. Typically this solution is used on a cloud platform, such as Azure or AWS, but more people are choosing Azure because the price is more reasonable."
"Databricks uses a price-per-use model, where you can use as much compute as you need."
"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."
"The pricing depends on the usage itself."
"Licensing on site I would counsel against, as on-site hardware issues tend to really delay and slow down delivery."
"I am based in South Africa, where it is expensive adapting to the cloud, and then there is the price for the tool itself."
"I do not exactly know the costs, but one of our clients pays between $100 USD and $200 USD monthly."
