Pipeline costs in fabric

Hi all,

I am new to fabric. Very confused about pricing.

 

We have PowerBI P1 capacity. We can buy F64 capacity.

 

My query is,

1. If I run pipelines (5TB data from synapse serverless pool) to Azure SQLDB. Is this free in the F64 capacity pricing ($8000/month)

2. If I run spark notebooks, Is it free in F64?

 

I am very confused with the details on Fabric pricing.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi. They way it works now it's a single and fixed price for the selected F SKU + the storage expenses. 

Details: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/microsoft-fabric/

That means the onelake (lakehouse or warehouse) have their own expense that is similar to Azure Storage Account (data lake gen2). Then all other Fabric content or items like dataflows, pipelines, notebooks, semantic models, etc. Any compute content of those last items are in the fixed price. You purchase Capacity Units (CU). It won't charge extra if you compute so mucho that overloads your CU, it will just get slower and slower. There are tools to monitor Capacity CU so you can understand the best SKU for you while using Fabric.

IMPORTANT: this is usually like that. However, it won't be like that if you turn on "Auto scale" feature. That feature makes sure you won't feel it slow if CU are overloading the capacity. Instead, it will increase the SKU for a while until the processing goes down.

I hope that make sense.

Oh! thanks for the reply.

 

So, we can save lot of cost compared to synapse spark notebook runs, dedicated pool loads(ETL).

 

Is it we can do everything in the Fabric capacity price? (F64 = $8000/month)

I don't think we can estimate if it's going to work or be enough for you because we don't have any kind of details of your developments. What you can do is turnin on a Fabric Trial of 60 days. You can migrate the most heavy ETLs or notebooks checking if the compute of Fabric Trial can handle it. The trial it's a F64. So you can check it with a strong one.

Once you have it deployed i would suggest getting the Fabric Capacity Metrics in order to check how the capacity units are doing.

That should help having an estimation if the F64 would be enough.

I hope that helps,

Sorry,

I am still confused after chatting with MS sales team.

 

They said that, the cost showing on the capacity is an estimate and pipeline rubs and spark charges will be applied.

I have reached out to you in private message. Can you please take a look and provide those details.
