KNIMER Server Small - Azure

I am trying to determine how pricing for KNIME Server Small in Azure is calculated

If I have a job that I need to run once per hour, 7am to 8pm, M-F and takes 10 minutes to complete am I charged for a full hour each time it runs?

Any insight in how costs are calculated would be very helpful as I work through project budgeting.

Thanks
Dan

Hi Dan,
You pay Microsoft for the VM by the minute (rounded down) as long as it is running. So if your workflow is finished within 10 minutes and 30 seconds and you immediately shut down and deallocate the machine, you are billed for 10 minutes. Here is a comprehensive description of the Azure billing: https://adamtheautomator.com/a-guide-to-finally-understanding-azure-vm-pricing/. The most interesting section for you is probably “How Azure VM Billing Works”.
Kind regards,
Alexander
