This topic describes the billing rules for each module in Machine Learning Studio.

Billing

One compute hour is equivalent to the usage of one CPU core and 4 GB of memory in one hour.

The following formula describes how to calculate the number of compute hours.
Number of compute hours = Max (Number of CPU cores × Usage duration, Memory size × Usage duration/4)
Note The memory size is measured in GB and the usage duration is measured in hours.
The following formula shows how to calculate the number of compute hours when you use 2 CPU cores and 5 GB of memory in one hour.
Number of compute hours = Max (2 × 1, 5 × 1/4) = 2
The following formula describes how to calculate the bill amount.
Bill amount= Number of compute hours × Unit price
