Databricks warehouse cost calculation

Akshay_Petkar
New Contributor III

I would like to know how the cost for a warehouse in Databricks is calculated. Specifically, if the cost for a 2x small warehouse is 4 DBUs per hour, how is the cost determined if I use the warehouse for only 30 minutes and then terminate it? Will it generate a cost of 4 DBUs, or will it be 2 DBUs?

As it states in Databricks documentation:

Databricks offers you a pay-as-you-go approach with no up-front costs. Only pay for the products you use at per second granularity.

It will charge 2 DBUs.
