Billing service


Currently, the Billing service is supported only for Databricks.

From the Billing tab you can track the charges of Unravel for its support for Databricks. Unravel supports tracking usage in DBUs as well as in instance hours. The following plans are supported:


    Unravel tracks the number of instance hours and DBUs that the user has incurred and shows the charges based on the usage.


    Users can pay in advance for a specific number of units, either DBUs or instance hours. Credits will be taken based on the usage, with the remaining credits shown on the Billing tab daily. Thus users can monitor when they run out of credits.
