Workloads

Azure Databricks offers three distinct workloads on several VM Instances tailored for your data analytics workflow—the Jobs Compute and Jobs Light Compute workloads make it easy for data engineers to build and execute jobs, and the All-Purpose Compute workload makes it easy for data scientists to explore, visualize, manipulate, and share data and insights interactively.

Pay as you go

Azure Databricks bills* you for virtual machines (VMs) provisioned in clusters and Databricks Units (DBUs) based on the VM instance selected. A DBU is a unit of processing capability, billed on a per-second usage. The DBU consumption depends on the size and type of instance running Azure Databricks.

Workload DBU prices—standard tier DBU prices—premium tier
All-Purpose Compute $-/DBU-hour $-/DBU-hour
Jobs Compute $-/DBU-hour $-/DBU-hour
Jobs Light Compute $-/DBU-hour $-/DBU-hour
*In addition to virtual machines, Azure Databricks will also bill for managed, disk, blob storage, Public IP Address.

Databricks Unit pre-purchase plan

You can get up to 37% savings over pay-as-you-go DBU prices when you pre-purchase Azure Databricks Units (DBU) as Databricks Commit Units (DBCU) for either 1 or 3 years. A Databricks Commit Unit (DBCU) normalises usage from Azure Databricks workloads and tiers into to a single purchase. Your DBU usage across those workloads and tiers will draw down from the Databricks Commit Units (DBCU) until they are exhausted or the purchase term expires. The draw down rate will be equivalent to the price of the DBU, as per the table above.

The purchase tiers and discounts for DBCU purchases are shown below:

1-year pre-purchase plan
