AWS vs. GCP Price Comparison
Qubole rents machines from AWS/GCE/Azure on behalf of a customer and works against data stored in their storage accounts. The customer is responsible for the raw compute/network/storage costs incurred within their accounts and pays that directly to the Cloud vendor. Qubole charges a premium for its service based on usage.
The Qubole Compute Unit Hour (QCUH) is a normalized unit of compute used for accounting purposes. It is defined to be equal to the use of one m1.xlarge instance for one hour in the us-east region on AWS. We normalize other instance types in different clouds/regions based on latest on-demand rates and machine configurations.
Tables with QCU ratings for different instance types in AWS [*] and GCE [†] are provided below.
The premium charged by Qubole is based on three units of consumption:
- Number of QCUH used
- Number of Users using Qubole
Our pricing includes an Elastic tier (where users are billed based on consumption on a monthly basis) and convenient packages at fixed monthly rates. For more information on price sheets and details, refer to the Pricing page.
