Billing Mode

A project's billing mode determines the strategy for how costs are charged to billable accounts.

Billing ModeDescription


All incurred costs will be charged to the tenant of the project owner


Incurred costs will be charged to the tenant of the user owning the project resource (ie, data, analysis). The only exceptions are base tables and queries, as well as bench compute and storage costs, which are always billed to the project owner.

For example, with billing mode set to Tenant, if tenant A has created a project resource and uses it in their project, then tenant A will pay for the resource data, compute costs and storage costs of any output they generate within the project. When they share the project with tenant B, then tenant B will pay the compute and storage for the data which they generate in that project. Put simply, in billing mode tenant, the person who generates data pays for the processing and storage of that data, regardless of who owns the actual project.

If the project billing mode is updated after the project has been created, the updated billing mode will only be applied to resources generated after the change.

If you are using your own S3 storage, then the billing mode impacts where collaborator data is stored.

  • Project billing will result in using your S3 storage for the data.

  • Tenant billing will result in collaborator data being stored in Illumina-managed storage instead of your own S3 storage.

  • Tenant billing, when your collaborators also have their own S3 storage and have it set as default, will result in their data being stored in their S3 storage.
