PowerBI embedded - Pricing per hour explained

Hi there,

In the uRL below we have the pricing details on PowerBI embedded, which translates in Node 1 to aproximately 1 dollar per hour.

My question is, if the SKU is only turned on for 15 minutes would the bill be 1/4 dollar? Or Microsoft rounds up the minutes to the next hour? Example: 15 minutes -> 1 hour. I had a colleague telling me this but I would like to validate this info.

Many thanks,

Hi @campelliann ,

In my opinion, 15 minutes would the bill be 1/4 dollar.

As mentioned in your link:

Power BI Embedded bills on a predictable hourly rate based on the type of node(s) deployed. Actual usage is computed to the second and billed hourly. For example, if an instance exists for 12 hours and 15 minutes in a month, your bill will show usage of 12.25 hours. If your instance is only active for 6 minutes, your bill will show usage of 0.1 hour.
