Fabric trial and billing for shortcuts with a target in another region

Hello, 

I have enabled the fabric capacity. I want to build a data pipline in Fabric. I have created a short cut to the data in ADLS Gen2. However this is in a different region than the region of my trial. Now I plan to load to data in a notebook and transform before writing it to the delta format (in the onelake). I understand since I am in trial period, my spark pool consumption/ onelake or any fabric items should not incur any cost. However will the data transfer across regions - when data is loaded from the target to be transformed in fabric - incur any costs?

It will be great if someone can throw light on my particular problem.

I have another question around Fabric trial and billing. I have installed the Fabrics capacity metrics app. Since I am under trial, I was expecting the billing type to indicate that under compute. However the type indicates it is billble. Confused here, as most of these items are Fabric items - lakehouse, notebook etc. 

 

Is it right to assume tht type may display as Billable in the Metrics app, but due to trial no cost will be added to my bill.

 

Hi @LeenaB ,

If you are using Trial Version of Fabric, then you won't be charge any amount.

Hi @LeenaB ,

Thanks for using Fabric Community.
At this time, we are reaching out to the internal team to get some help on this .
We will update you once we hear back from them.



Hi @LeenaB ,

We an update from internal team -

" There will be no Fabric billing but Azure bills for data egress when reading ADLS Gen2 across regions. "

In order to understand Fabric Pricing, you can refer below:
Microsoft Fabric - Pricing | Microsoft Azure
Announcing Microsoft Fabric capacities are available for purchase | Microsoft Fabric Blog | Microsof...

Hope this is helpful. Please let me know incase of further queries.

Thanks a lot for the clarification.

 

The entire concept of OneLake is to avoid data duplication. Shortcuts do a fantastic job by allowing us to access any data anywhere. Fabric capacity in itself is significantly priced. So to control costs, I would ideally need my ADLS Gen2 in the same region as the Fabric capacity, or then copy over the data into another ADLS Gen2 in the same region.
