Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The pricing depends on the usage itself.""I am based in South Africa, where it is expensive adapting to the cloud, and then there is the price for the tool itself.""The price is okay. It's competitive.""Databricks uses a price-per-use model, where you can use as much compute as you need."
