Access to Premium Features and Data Sources including DataSift Historics
DataSift Historics provides a big-data platform to enable you to crunch through more than 2 years of public Tweets to identify trends and insights. As a subscription customer you’ll get access to DataSift Historics to take your social application further, prime it with past data and mine billions of public Tweets for insights. As with our real-time platform, you’ll use-up DPUs when you run a Historics filter against past data.
In addition, as a subscription customer, you’ll be able to add-on content from a growing list of premium sources and providers including content from 750+ of the world’s major news organizations, to enable you to analyze social conversations alongside news-provided content.
Raise your Twitter limits
While the DataSift filters you create will run across every single Tweet, there is a 500,000 daily limit on the number of Tweets that can be delivered to you in a Pay-As-You-Go account. If you expect to go beyond this limit, contact us to discuss a subscription and how to raise your monthly limits.
Save 40%+ on Processing Costs
Our subscription customers received a volume discount off the data processing costs. Each package comes with a designated number of Data Processing units (DPUs) – 25,000 (Bronze), 50,000 (Silver), 125,000 (Gold), and 250,000 (Platinum). As the level of your package increases, your cost per DPU decreases. For example, a Bronze package will give you 25,000 DPUs at a cost of $0.12 per unit, compared to $0.20 per unit that Pay-As-You-Go customers pay.
Access to our Expert Support Team
Skip the line and get personal phone and email support. Silver subscriptions and upward include premier access to our support team to provide peace of mind and assistance with your DataSift powered solution.
Avoid a "I've run out of credit" situation.
If you have a Pay-As-You-Go account, just like on a Pay-As-You-Go cell phone, we’ll stop the service when you run out of credit. For subscription customers, we’ll always keep you running and bill you at the end of the month for any overage. Either way, we’ll alert you via email ahead of time.
How Pricing Works
The cost of using a stream is calculated in Data Processing Units (DPUs), which for our real-time service is the effort required to run a stream for one hour. It costs $0.20 per hour on our Pay-As-You-Go plan, to run a 1 DPU complexity filter.
If stream complexity is more than 1 DPU:
A stream with a complexity of 2.3 DPUs (2.3 x $0.20) would be $0.46 per hour to run this on DataSift.
If stream complexity is less than 1 DPU:
For a very simple filter, with a complexity of less than one DPU, a minimum cost of $0.20 per hour applies.
Keep in mind, DataSift gives you a huge economy of scale - the more things you track, the more cost effective it becomes. For example, this 10,000 keyword filter (5.2 DPU) would only cost $1.04 per hour to run with Pay-As-You-Go, or $0.62 if you were on entry level Bronze subscription package.
We also charge you for the volume of data that we deliver to you and any other processing we do on that data, such as sentiment or links analysis. You can see the breakdown of volume and augmentation costs here.
