Cloud infrastructure pricing

BioData Catalyst powered by Seven Bridges is a cloud-based environment that uses underlying cloud infrastructure to execute analyses, store and transfer data. This use of cloud resources generates costs that are charged by the cloud infrastructure provider and passed through by Seven Bridges. The costs are categorized as follows:

  • Compute costs: When you run a task on the Platform, we use one or more compute instances from the Platform's underlying cloud infrastructure provider to process the data.
  • Storage costs: When you add your own files to the Platform and put them in a project, they are housed in cloud storage. 
  • Data transfer costs: These costs are generated due to transferring data out from the cloud storage, e.g. when downloading files from the Platform.

All of these costs are billed on a monthly basis.
