Azure Purview Pricing example
Azure Purview pricing?
Since my last post on Azure Purview announcements and new functionalities I got some questions regarding pricing. In the meantime the pricing page has been updated and I’ve created also a new Azure Purview instance in my subscription(after August 18th). Currently most of the Azure Purview components are still free until further Notice. To get more details I still recommend everyone to register to the Azure Purview event on September 28th 2021, https://azuredatagovernance.eventcore.com/
As a small recap:
Azure Purview Elastic Data Map
|Capacity Unit||€0.347 per 1 Capacity Unit Hour (was €0.289 )
Free in Preview Starting August 16, 2021 until Further Notice
When you have created your Azure Purview after Augusts 18th, you will see that you are currently not charged for the Data Map Units.
As you can see, no charging anymore for Data Map, I’m only charged for my scanning, which I only do manually do save some costs.
Based on the example which is published on the pricing page, I’ve done a Calculation:
Data Map can scale capacity elastically based on the request load. Request load is measured in terms of data map operations per second. As a cost control measure, a Data Map is configured by default to elastically scale up to a peak of 8 times the steady state capacity.
For dev/trial usage:
Data Map (Always on): 1 capacity unit x Price per capacity unit per hour x 730 hours per month
Scanning (Pay as you go): Total duration (in minutes) of all scans in a month / 60 min per hour x 32 vCore per scan x €0.532 per vCore per hour
Resource Set: Total duration (in hours) of processing resource set data assets in a month * Price per vCore per hour
The total cost per month for Azure Purview = cost of Data Map + cost of Scanning + cost of Resource Set
Assuming above Scenario that we only use 1 Capacity Unit and use not more then 2 GB of Metadata storage and we scan our data once a week for 2 hours.
Data Map 1 CPU x €0.347 X 730 hours = €253,31
Scanning 4 scans x 2 hours x 32 VCore x €0.532 per vCore per hour = €136,20
Resource Set 4 scans x 1 hour x €0.532 per vCore per hour €2,128
In Total €392 including 4 scans. If you leave Azure Purview as is and no scanning you base fee will be €253,31.
I’m looking forward to the event on September 28th and I’m sure it will become much clearer. Like always, in case you have questions, leave them in the comments or send me a message.
