Data processing fee

The Managed Protection Plus data processing fee meters the data egressed to the internet from all protected resources for every project that is enrolled in Managed Protection Plus. The data processing fee is billed at the billing account level, aggregating usage across all protected resources in all projects enrolled in Managed Protection Plus. The data processing fee is expected to be turned on and billed on March 15th, 2021.

Protected resources include all backend services of the following load balancer types in each enrolled project:

  • An external HTTP(S) load balancer
  • An SSL proxy load balancer
  • A TCP proxy load balancer

Prices are per egressed GB. For example, for Cloud Load Balancing, the internet, and Cloud Interconnect, the charge is $0.05 per GB for the first 100 TB egressed.
