Pay for the Storage and Compute You Use

Rockset independently scales compute and storage based on the amount of data indexed and your query performance requirements.


Rockset prices for usage based on:

    Virtual Instance: Compute and memory that you use every hour to serve your queries.

    Data Ingested: Amount of uncompressed data you ingest.

    Hot Storage: Amount of compressed data you store and index on hot storage (NVMe SSD).

Choose a plan that suits your use case and organization's governance policies.

Pricing Examples

Example 1

In September, you build a geosearch feature for your IoT device using Kafka and Rockset. You ingest 10GB of uncompressed data daily. The total size of data on disk after compression and indexing for every day is 20GB. You retain the data for 1 day. You select a Dedicated Virtual Instance at $0.7989/hr to run compute heavy queries.

Ingest Charges

$0.10 per GB x 10 GB x 30 days
= $30.00/mo

Storage Charges

$0.29 per GB x 20 GB
= $5.80/mo

Query Compute Charges

$0.7989/hr x 720 hours
= $575.21/mo

Total Bill for September

$30.00 + $5.80 + $575.21
= $611.01

Example 2

In September, you build a leaderboard for your gaming application on MongoDB data. Your uncompressed data in MongoDB is 200GB. You ingested 5GB of change data from MongoDB every day during the month. Your total data size on disk after indexing and compression in Rockset remains at 300GB for the first 20 days and then increases to 400GB for the last 10 days. You select a Dedicated Virtual Instance at $0.7989/hr to run compute heavy queries.

Ingest Charges

One-time bulk load: $0.10 per GB x 200GB
= $20/mo
Change stream = $0.10 per GB x 5GB x 30 days
= $15/mo

Storage Charges

($0.29 per GB x 300GB x 28800 minutes/43200 minutes) + ($0.29 per GB x 400 GB x 14400 minutes/43200 minutes)
= $96.66/mo

Query Compute Charges

$0.7989/hr x 720 hours
= $575.21/mo

Total Bill for September:

$35.00 + $96.66 + $575.21
= $706.87

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Rockset priced?
Rockset charges you for usage on amount of uncompressed user data that you ingest, amount of compressed data you store and index and compute that you use for your queries.
In which AWS regions is Rockset available?
Rockset’s free trial is available in us-west-2 region. For other regions, contact us.
What is the difference between free and shared compute plans?
Rockset has a free plan for users who store less than 2 GBs of data. Users receive 5 GB of ingest per month. You can access the free plan without ever having to enter your credit card information. Rockset's shared compute plan is for users who store less than 100 GBs of data.
What is the difference between shared compute and dedicated compute plans?
Shared compute plans have shared Virtual Instances and dedicated compute plans have dedicated Virtual Instances. Shared Virtual Instances are shared across multiple Rockset accounts. As a result, your query performance will vary based on usage from other accounts. They are ideal for development and testing purposes. Dedicated Virtual Instances are compute and memory resources dedicated to your Rockset account. You get uniform query performance. They are recommended for running production applications.
What kind of deployment customizations are available under the dedicated compute in your VPC plan?
Rockset’s dedicated Virtual Instances are deployed in your VPC in your AWS account. Data gets ingested from your sources into these Virtual Instances, gets indexed and your applications can query them. In this deployment model, your data primarily lives in your VPC in your AWS account.
What Dedicated Virtual Instance sizes are available?
Dedicated Virtual Instances come in different sizes. Different sizes give you different vCPU and RAM resources. Based on your query performance and application SLA needs, you can choose an appropriate Virtual Instance size. If you need a different size apart from the ones listed below, contact us.

How does Rockset assure high availability?
A Rockset dedicated Virtual Instance is fully distributed and comprises a set of kubernetes pods. Each pod contain compute and cache for serving your applications. Your workload is equally balanced among all the constituent pods, which in turn, reduces hotspots, thereby improving overall availability of your system. The cache keeps the data close to compute resources for fast query serving and there is redundancy in this caching layer so that a single pod death does not impact query performance. These pods are configured to be fault-tolerant within a single availability zone, and if a pod dies, a new one takes its place without any downtime.
Do you offer Service Level Agreements?
Yes. We provide reliability SLA for users building production applications. Contact us to learn more about our uptime SLA.
How do you measure data stored in Rockset for billing?
Rockset stores data in RocksDB format with efficient compression techniques and automatically builds a Converged Index which indexes every field of your document, including nested objects and array entries, in at least three different ways for fast queries. You will be charged for the total size of data after indexing and compression.
How do I optimize my storage costs?
Rockset autoscales storage based on your data volumes. You pay exactly for how much compressed data you store and index. To reduce the amount of data you store further, Rockset provides automatic data lifecycle management. You can leverage this functionality to remove data older than certain number of days. This will help you optimize your storage costs out of the box.
How does Rockset secure my data?
Rockset’s Virtual Instances are provisioned behind AWS Virtual Private Cloud. Unencrypted data will never be sent outside of Rockset’s VPC. Data being sent to and from Rockset are encrypted via SSL/TLS certificates, which is managed by AWS Certificate Manager. All data at rest in Rockset is always encrypted and stored in AWS EBS Volume Manager or local solid state drives or S3. In all cases, the encryption keys are managed by AWS Key Management Service (KMS).
Do you provide technical support?
For product feature inquiries and API integrations, please join our community slack channel. We also offer enterprise technical support with annual commitments. Contact us to learn more.
Are volume discounts available?
Yes. We offer 15% discounts with annual commitments. Contact us to learn more.
