Managing Billing Accounts


The Enterprise edition of Dremio Cloud is available on the AWS Marketplace. You can use your AWS account for billing.

Dremio costs are based on your organization's usage and edition. While Dremio offers a forever-free Standard edition, billable usage for all projects in an organization on a paid edition is charged through a billing account, which can be managed through the Dremio UI. Dremio will draw down any existing DCU balance in your billing account before charging for usage at an on-demand rate. For more information about editions and their features, see Editions.


When you first upgrade to Enterprise, you'll get 1,000 free DCUs gifted to your billing account. To learn about DCUs and how they work, see Understanding Usage. After you have used up your initial DCU balance, Dremio will start to track your billable usage.

Changing Your Organization's Edition

Note the following before changing your Dremio edition:

  • Only ADMIN users can switch Dremio editions for your organization.

  • If you are changing from Enterprise to Standard edition, you must meet all of the requirements associated with Standard. For example, you can have no more than three projects and no enterprise identity providers configured.

To change your Dremio edition:

  1. On the main Billing page, under the Edition section, click Change edition.

  2. Click Select Plan for the edition to which you want to change.

  3. Click Change edition.

    A notification will display at the top of the screen to indicate that the edition was changed successfully.


    You need a billing account to use Enterprise edition. If you are upgrading from Standard to Enterprise and have not yet created a billing account, you will be prompted to create one.
