Qubole Compute Unit (QCU): Google Compute Engine

The QCU is a normalized unit of compute used for accounting purposes. It is defined to be equal to the use of onem1.xlarge instance for one hour in AWS useast region. We use the latest AWS on-demand rates to normalize other instance types in different regions to a QCU. The table below shows the equivalent QCU for different instance types in AWS useast region, while using the Google Compute Engine platform:

GCE instance type Equivalent QCU
n1-standard-1 0.25
n1-standard-2 0.50
n1-standard-4 1.00
n1-standard-8 2.00
n1-standard-16 4.00
n1-highmem-2 0.59
n1-highmem-4 1.17
n1-highmem-8 2.34
n1-highmem-16 4.69
n1-highcpu-2 0.31
n1-highcpu-4 0.63
n1-highcpu-8 1.26
n1-highcpu-16 2.51
