Quick Guide to DPUs

What is a DPU?

DPUs (Data Processing Units) are what DataSift uses to charge for consuming streams, running Historics, and using other platform features.

What does a DPU cost?

If you are using DataSift's Pay-As-You-Go plan, a DPU will be equivalent to $0.20 (USD), however DPUs can be a little cheaper per unit if you subscribe to a Professional or Enterprise monthly subscription plan.
