Frequently asked questions about Azure Databricks
The Azure Databricks SLA guarantees 99.95 per cent availability.
A Databricks unit, or DBU, is a unit of processing capability per hour, billed on per-second usage.
A data engineering workload is a job that automatically starts and terminates the cluster on which it runs. For example, a workload may be triggered by the Azure Databricks job scheduler, which launches an Apache Spark cluster solely for the job and automatically terminates the cluster after the job has been completed.
The data analytics workload isn’t automated. For example, commands within Azure Databricks notebooks run on Apache Spark clusters until they’re manually terminated. Multiple users can share a cluster to analyse it collaboratively.
