Pricing & Billing

Your warehouses and storage consume credits in Databend Cloud. The Trial Plan (ends in 30-days) offers 200 FREE credits. When you’re running low, you can buy more credits in Organization > Billing. Each credit costs $1.

Warehouse Pricing

Warehouses consume credits when they are running (to be more precise, in the Running state). The number of credits consumed depends on the warehouse's size and running time. An XSmall warehouse with 8 vCPUs only consumes 1 credit per hour.

Databend Cloud charges on a per-second basis. For example, if you have a Small warehouse running for three seconds, it will charge 0.00168 (0.000556 x 3) credit. Before you run a warehouse, make sure you have enough credits. To check your credit balance or buy more credits, go to Organization > Billing.

Size (vCPUs)Credits / HourCredits / Second
XSmall (8)$ 1$ 0.000278
Small (16)$ 2$ 0.000556
Medium (32)$ 4$ 0.001111
Large (64)$ 8$ 0.002222
XLarge (128)$ 16$ 0.004444

A suspended warehouse does not consume any credits. Databend Cloud automatically suspends a warehouse in case of no activities for five minutes to save your credits. Alternatively, you can always manually suspend a warehouse when your work is complete. For more information about how to work with warehouses, see Working with Warehouses
