FAQ

  • Any component connected to an Azure Digital Twins spatial intelligence graph is considered a node. In the graph this includes all spaces, devices, sensors and users. As you model the real world in Azure Digital Twins, those nodes which store metadata and real-time data are the nodes for which you will be billed. Let’s look at two examples of smart building solutions built on Azure Digital Twins:

    • Scenario A: 1 tenant, 1 building, 2 floors, 4 rooms per floor, 1 device per room and 2 sensors per device. In this scenario there are 36 nodes.
    • Scenario B: 1 tenant, 10 buildings, 3 floors per building, 50 rooms per floor, 1 device per room and 2 sensors per device. In this scenario there are 6,041 nodes.
  • Messages count three things: API calls to the Azure Digital Twins APIs, incoming (ingress) messages sent to device and sensor nodes in Azure Digital Twins, or messages sent from Azure Digital Twins (egress) to other systems. All of these are counted for billing purposes.

  • Pricing Example

    Pricing per node

    In Scenario B there are 6041 nodes and the cost for that would be $151.025 per month with discounted pricing, or $302.05 per month with full pricing.

    Pricing per message volume

    If the devices send 1 message per minute that would be 64,800,000 messages in a 30-day month (1440 * 1500 * 30) and that would be 64.8 million messages at a rate of $2.5 per million results, using the 50% discounted pricing, which would result in $162 per month, or $324 per month with full pricing.

    In the examples given above, the customer would get charged for the number of nodes, added to the customer’s messaging volume.

    Total price = Pricing per node + Pricing per message volume

    Discounted: $151.025 + $162 + $313.025

    Full Price: $302.05 + $324 = $626.05

    Per node pricing is prorated on an hourly basis. During an hour if there is fluctuation in the number of nodes connected to Azure Digital Twins, the highest number of connected nodes for that hour are billed.

    Changing which devices send data and how often those devices send data will affect the overall pricing.
