By default, your notebook computations are run on the cheapest CPU S machine. As part of the Datalore Professional plan package, you get 750 hours of CPU S computations, a standalone category on your Datalore credit balance. After you run out of your CPU S time, you can start spending your Datalore credits to continue using CPU S.

Your other option is changing to a more powerful machine and use it within the limit of the hours available on your balance. Datalore calculates how long you can use any of the available machines according to your Datalore credit balance. Professional plan users get 12 Datalore credits monthly.

Datalore credits

Datalore credits is the special currency unit in which you pay for the use of our powerful CPU and GPU machines. There are 3 types of Datalore credits:

  • Free Datalore credits: Pro plan users get 12 Free Datalore credits every month, the unused part of which expires at the end of the month.

  • Paid Datalore credits: Can be purchased via JetStore.

  • Gift credits: Issued to a user as gift codes.

You can track and manage your balance in Account settings | Billing or Tools | Computation.

Spot and on-demand machines

For each new notebook computation, Datalore launches a new AWS EC2 machine. By default, this is a spot machine, a cheaper option, which ensures lower expenses on your side. This machine type costs lower because such machines are not always available and theoretically can be interrupted at any time of computation.

However, in the hours of higher load on the AWS side, spot machines may not be available, which prompts Datalore to launch on-demand machines. We will cover the extra costs (normally 3x) for launching on-demand machines in such cases.

Procedures

In this chapter, you will learn how to change machine types, manage your credit balance, and download balance reports.
