Metering details

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. Please see our billing documentation for more details.

Usage TypeBilling UnitsMetering Details

Read requests

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.

Write requests

API calls to write data to 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 storage

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 temporality. 

Event streaming

Streaming is billed as a sum of the time a stream is kept open (TCOs) and the number of events sent through the stream (TROs).

Each streamed event counts two TROs which includes an initial 4k bytes read from storage, plus one TRO per additional 4k bytes read from storage, per subscriber.

One TCO is counted for every 1 second that a stream is held open, per subscriber. More details here.

Database indexing

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.

Backup snapshot creation

Compute units (TCOs) it takes to create backup snapshots.

Every snapshot incurs 20,000 TCOs. In addition, for every 1 MB of data that you snapshot, you incur 100 TCOs on your bill.

For example, if you backup for a 1 GB database, it's 1000 MBs * 100 TCOs = 100,000 TCOs for the snapshot plus the base charge of 20,000 TCOs for a total of 120,000 TCOs.

Backup snapshot storage

Snapshot storage is billed based on size (GBs) and retention period (days) and is called Backup Storage.

For every 1 MB of data stored per day, you are billed $.00005 in the US region group.

For example if you have 1 GB of backup snapshots stored for 30-days that's 1000 MB * 30 * $.00005 = $1.5.

Backup snapshot restore/copy

Compute units (TCOs) it takes to restore or copy from a snapshot.

For every 1 MB of data restored or copied, you incur 100 TCOs on your bill.

For example, restoring or copying a 1 GB database is 1000 MB * 100 = 100,000 TCOs. The cost of TCOs you incur depends on the region group of your database. The US region group costs $2.03/Million TCOs - for 100,00 TCOs, you are charged $.203 per restore or copy.
