Dataprep by Trifacta billing cycles

Feature Availability: This feature may not be available in all product editions.

Billing for the use of Dataprep by Trifacta is based upon:

  1. project and user usage of the application (daily)
    1. Project usage: if the project was used during the day by someone, it is tabulated as used during the day.
    2. User usage: Count of number of users who used the project during the day.
  2. CPU usage for job execution (hourly).

Project and user usage

Dataprep by Trifacta reports project and user usage daily, using a monthly billing cycle that follows a single time zone.

NOTE: Since November 1, 2021, daily project and user usage is reported on the Pacific time zone through Google. Usage tracking remains on UTC time zone. This means that the values that you see for any day through Google Marketplace reporting actually represent usage based on the same day in the UTC time zone.

NOTE: During the year, UTC time may mean:

  • Pacific time zone is UTC-07:00 during daylight savings time.
  • Pacific time zone is UTC-08:00 during standard time.

vCPU usage

Use of virtual CPU (vCPU) units is tabulated on an hourly basis. This tabulation uses the Pacific time zone billing cycle.

For example, running a job at 05:00 am UTC on November 1 is tabulated as part of the billing for October, since the job's vCPU usage is tabulated on October 31, Pacific time.
