Datalore credits

Datalore credits is the special currency unit for the use of our paid CPU and GPU machines. There are 3 ways you can get Datalore credits:

  • Paid personal plan subscription: Datalore Professional users get 12 free Datalore credits every month, the unused part of which expires at the end of the month.

  • Purchase: You can add Datalore credits via JetBrains Store. Find more details in Purchase Datalore credits. These credits do not expire at the end of the month.

  • Gifts: Datalore credits can be issued to a user as gift codes. Find more details in Activate extra Datalore credits. These credits do not expire at the end of the month.

You can view the details of your balance in Account settings | Billing.

Spot and on-demand machines

Default behaviour

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.

Since spot machines are the default option, you may get messages prompting you to switch to on-demand machines if Datalore detects long-term computations.

On-demand machine alternative

On rare occasions, there is no spot machine available due to higher load on the AWS side. Users receive the On-demand machine alternative notification as shown below:

On-demand machine alternative

You can choose whether to use such an option (and pay extra Datalore credits) or wait for an available spot machine.

Procedures

In this chapter, you will learn how to switch machine options, manage your credit balance, and select an option for situations when there is no spot machine available for your scheduled runs.
