Use the Cost 360 feature to govern your spending for Databricks. You can optimize your clusters and jobs to manage your cloud expenses.

Key features

  • Observability: View trends and chargeback to identify cost anomalies and drill down to find out who or what contributes to the anomalies. You can organize your resources with granular chargeback by app, user, department, project, business unit, queue, cluster, or instance.

  • Optimization: Optimize cluster costs by tailoring the cluster sizes to the observed workloads and optimizing job performances.

  • Monitoring: Actively monitor cluster costs against user-defined budgets, observe warnings if cost is trending to exceed the budget, and accordingly take appropriate action.
