Prices for usage of AutoML Tables are computed based on the underlying GCP resources required for model training, model deployment, batch prediction, and online prediction.
Prices are listed in US Dollars (USD).
These prices reflect a Beta program discount and are subject to change at GA.
Model training costs
Model training costs $19.32 per hour of compute resources used to train your model, billed at the granularity of seconds. This price includes the use of 92 n1-standard-4 equivalent machines in parallel. We also provide a one-time 6 hours of free training.
Model deployment costs
Model deployment costs $0.005 per GiB per hour per machine that a model is deployed, billed at the granularity of MiB per second. We currently replicate your model to memory in 9 machines for low latency serving purposes, so there is a 9x multiplier applied to this cost.
For example, if the size of your model is 10 GiB, and you deploy for 3 hours, you would be charged $0.005 * 10 * 3 * 9, or $1.35.
Models must be deployed before they can be used to provide online predictions.
Batch prediction costs
Batch prediction using your model costs $1.16 per hour, billed at the granularity of seconds. This price includes the use of 5.5 n1-standard-4 equivalent machines in parallel. We also provide a one-time 6 hours of free batch predictions.
Online prediction costs
Online predictions using your model cost $0.21 per hour, billed at the granularity of milliseconds. This price includes the use of 1 n1-standard-4 equivalent machine.
