Fauna bills your usage based on the resources consumed by your API calls (queries). Each call results in reads, writes, compute, and storage, based on the shape of your query.
|Usage Type||Billing Units||Metering Details|
API calls to read data from your database are billed in units called Transactional Read Ops (TROs).
A read request (by default strongly consistent and transactional) of up to 4KB requires one TRO. For items larger than 4KB, additional TROs are required. For example, a read request of an 8KB item requires two TROs.
API calls to write data your database are billed in units called Transactional Write Ops (TWOs).
A write request (by default transactional and replicated) of up to 1KB requires one TWO. For items larger than 1KB, additional TWOs are required. For example, a write request of a 3KB item requires three TWOs.
User-defined functions (UDFs) & API calls
API calls to your database incur CPU usage that is billed in units called Transactional Compute Ops (TCOs).
An API call that contains up to 50 function calls requires one TCO. For example, [Paginate(Match("users_by_email", "abc@fauna")] costs one TRO + one TCO.
Data written to your database is billed in terms of disk space used, and called Data Storage.
Storage is measured in GB, and includes the total volume of data stored on disk for each write, including storage incurred for replication and temporality.
Streams are billed as a sum of the cpu time consumed for keeping a stream open (TCOs) and the number of reads (TROs).
The cost of running a stream is billed in TCOs. Reads are billed in TROs.
New index creation is billed in terms in of CPU consumed (TCOs) for building that index.
Building indexes is charged in terms of TCOs consumed depending on the size of the index.
Metering unit rates
Fauna charges the following rates for each unit for data hosted in standard regions.
Transactional Read Ops (TROs)
Transactional Write Ops (TWOs)
Transactional Compute Ops (TCOs)
