Pricing

Pricing for DataStax Astra on Google Cloud is based on capacity unit (CU) and Service Tier.

Each Astra database (except on the Free tier) uses a single CU by default, which represents three database nodes that are grouped together. A single CU represents three replicas of approximately 500 GB of data.

The Service Tier represents the amount of compute power allocated to each CU, and represents three compute instances per CU. DataStax Astra on Google Cloud provides the following Service Tiers:

  • Free: Free, with 10 GB storage.
    Note: You can have only one active database on the Free tier.
  • C10: Starter configuration for development and light production workloads.

Pricing is presented in the DataStax Cloud console in hourly terms, but billed in one-minute granularity.
