Frequently Asked Questions

Is this actually free to use?

You still have to pay your cloud provider (AWS, GCP, Azure) but Coiled won't charge you anything extra until you're using more than 10,000 CPU-hours per month.

10,000 CPU-hours is enough to perform a modest data transformation job (1 hour of 100 CPUs) a few times a day, every day, continuously.

    Can I pay to get help with Dask?

    If you’re using Coiled you’ll find that our engineers reach out frequently. We’re constantly tracking failures and engaging with users to see how we can make Dask and Coiled better. If you want to ask questions we’re happy to help.

    If you’re not using Coiled these engagements are less efficient and so it’s harder to help. For a few large partner organizations with heavy use of Dask on-prem we do sell Enterprise Dask Support.

    How do bulk discounts work?

    You pay in-advance for buckets of CPU-hours. These come at a discount. The more you commit to using the lower the per-unit cost. Contact Us to learn more.

      Why the $0.05 additional charge?

      We have to charge you somehow. Usage-based pricing is the best approach we've found so far.

      Every CPU-hour we manage for you beyond the free tier gets accounted for. We charge roughly five cents per CPU-hour used at the end of the month.

      You can pay by credit card, or with a purchase order. Overages are billed monthly in arrears. Volume discounts are available and are billed annually.

      • Only pay for what you use. We’re incentivized to make Dask and Coiled as useful for you as possible.
      • As you get into more exotic machine types like high memory nodes or GPUs these values can change. As you commit to more usage, these values can change.
      How much does this cost me?

      Nothing until you use 10,000 CPU-hours per month. After that we do usage-based pricing. If we’re managing $1M of spend on AWS/GCP/Azure then we expect to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars. If we’re managing hundreds of dollars then we don’t care and are happy to give away the product for free.

      In general we find that our cost-saving measures save customers more money than we charge. More in-depth information on our Build vs. Buy page.

      Can you help me run on-prem?

      You can deploy Dask anywhere with technologies like HPC job schedulers, Kubernetes, or cloud deployment APIs. See the Dask documentation. Coiled manages Dask clusters in the cloud, deploying within your own cloud provider account (we never see your data).

      If you are truly on-prem (like on OpenStack) then we can connect you to other companies and contractors that can set things up for you. Send us a note and we’ll connect you to groups that we trust to do excellent work.

      Care about costs? So do we.
