Two different pricing models for you to choose


You decide if you want to pay based on the storage space it takes to store your data on SlicingDice (pay-per-gigabyte), or if you prefer to pay based on how many columns you have on your database and have free and unlimited data storage (pay-per-column).


Pay-per-gigabyte

By using the pay-per-gigabyte pricing model you only will pay for the storage space used to store the data on your SlicingDice database.

This table on the right describes how we calculate the total size of your database, according to each data type you store on it.

Null values for any column type are calculated as 0 bytes. Repeated values are calculated per entry, so a Numeric column with 4 entries counts as 32 bytes.

Important: Different from most of our competitors, we don't charge anything for processing the queries you make! Amazing, right?

Pay-per-gigabyte Prices


Monthly spend = Sum of Gigabytes stored x Cost per Gigabyte + Insertion Load Plan + Query Load Plan.

Example: $75.00 per month = 100 GB x $0.25 ($25.00) + normal query load ($0.00) + high insertion load ($50.00)

Price per Gigabyte stored, per month

From 1 to 10,240 Gigabytes (10 Terabytes)
US$ 0.25 per GB

More than 10,240 Gigabytes

Monthly spend example

...

Suppose you have this data on the left. As you can see, there are four different column types, User ID is an UniqueID column type, Name is a String column type, Age is a Numeric column type and Clicks is a String Time-series column type.

To generate your monthly bill, SlicingDice will look all the values stored on each column and multiply by the size factor according to the column type, plus the query and insert load plans you selected.

So on this table each value for the User ID and Name columns will have 2 bytes + the UTF-8 encoded string size, the values for the column Age will have 8 bytes and the values for the Clicks column will have 2 bytes + the UTF-8 encoded string size + 8 byes for the timestamp.

Pay-per-column

There are two types of columns you can create on your SlicingDice database: attribute column and event column.


Attribute Columns

Column to store any data that is not associated to a date/time.
Example: storing the value Jeff for the Name attribute column. In this case the column and its value is not associated to a specific date/time.

Event Columns

Column to store data that must be associated to a date/time.
Example: storing the value Pay Now on the date 2017-04-02 for the Clicks event column. In this case the data must be associated to a date/time.


...

Pay-per-column Prices


Monthly spend = number of Attribute Columns + Event Columns + Insertion Load Plan + Query Load Plan.

Example: $83.00 per month = 2 attribute columns ($3.00) + 10 event columns ($30.00) + normal query load ($0.00) + high insertion load ($50.00)

Attribute Columns - Price per column, per month

From 1 to 500 Attribute Columns
US$ 1.50 per column

More than 500 Attribute Columns

Monthly spend example

...

Suppose you have this data on the left. As you can see, the Clicks column is storing events data (event value + timestamp), and other columns are simply storing attributes, like Name and Age (just the value, no timestamp associated to it).

To know what is you monthly bill, you simply need to count how many attribute columns (two in this case, Name and State) and event columns (just one, Clicks) you have on your SlicingDice database, plus the query and insert load plans you selected.

Remember: By using the pay-per-column pricing model, the amount of data (values/rows) you insert for each column (attributes or events) will NOT impact on your cost.

...

Unlimited and Free Data Storage


That’s right, by selecting the pay-per-column model you can store as much data (values/rows) as you need without increasing costs, as you are only charged by the number of columns (attributes and events) you have, not by the volume of data you insert on your columns. Amazing, right?

We believe you shouldn't be punished financially just because you collect and analyze lots of data.

We are fully committed to your query speed


If any of your queries takes longer than 10 seconds to complete, no matter its complexity, you automatically receive 10¢ discount each time on your account.

If your query is slow we believe it’s our responsibility, not yours.
