Hey all - in our ongoing quest to find Google Cloud credits, I recently updated and re-ran some numbers for our billing on mybinder.org. As many folks know, we run Binder as a radically open service, which means being transparent about our costs and usage over time.
You can find an updated and interactive report here:
It uses information from our Binder data repository, which has daily billing data
As well as the Binder launch archive:
Here are some interesting plots!
Our daily cost has gone up in the last few months:
and this has also correlated with a recently large growth in the number of launches:
(number of sessions averaged over 6 day window)
Which results in a pretty small cost per session (about $.014 per session)
(cost per session over time)
This is largely because of our computing nodes:
(daily cost broken down by category)
That’s it! Hope this has been interesting
