What is 'Azure Databricks Regional' cost subcategory in Azure Cost management?

I could not find any documentation around it or information on Internet. This subcategory only shows for one of many (Premium) Databricks workspaces in a subscription.

    Hello Christoph Bergmeister,

    Yes, you are correct. This cost is only associated with the Premium Databricks workspaces region.

    When I further filter the cost from my end via the "Meter", I see the cost is associated with:

    • Premium SQL compute
    • Premium Serverless SQL (in the premium workspace region)

    Please see the below pricing calculator.

    for the Standard tier- SQL compute/Serverless SQL/SQL pro compute doesn't apply.

    These costs are only applicable to premium tiers.


    and from the below document, Some of the features are region-specific only.

    For example- in west Europe- Serverless SQL is supported. So you can see the cost related when using these features that appear under" Azure databricks regional" as they are related to region-specific.


    I hope this makes sense to you. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
