Using Google Cloud pricing calculator for BigQuery

The Google Cloud pricing calculator is used to estimate the storage cost and/or the cost of running your desired query before you actually run it. 

However, this calculator works only when you are querying the data in terabytes or petabytes.

1 petabyte (PB) = 1000 terabytes (TB)

Follow the steps below to use the Google Cloud pricing calculator:

Step-1: Use the query validator in the cloud console to calculate the amount of data that will be processed if you run the query:

Step-2: Navigate to the Google Cloud Pricing calculator: https://cloud.google.com/products/calculator

You should now see a screen like the one below:

Step-6: Enter the name of your data table:

Step-7: Enter the location from where the BigQuery will be used:

Step8: Use the following configuration for ‘storage pricing’ as we are not estimating the storage cost:

Step9: Enter the amount of data that will be processed when you run the query. In my case, it would be 1.1 peta bytes (PB):

Step-10: Click on the ‘ADD TO ESTIMATE’ button.

You should now be able to see the cost estimated on the right-hand side of your screen:
