    I have a question about prefect cloud billing. If I run a single map task on a list of 10K items. Do I get charged for 1 task or for 10K tasks?

    @Kyle Heath a direct answer: yes, you will be charged for 10k tasks (as long as those mapped tasks are successful and take longer than 1 second) because mapping generates first-class task run objects that work the same way as any other tasks and include their own retries, observability, etc. an indirect answer: I wouldn’t view this as being priced per task really. You pay for the platform in general - the reason why pricing is based on the number of task runs is because this is a visible metric of Prefect adoption. As you run increasingly more tasks, you’ll probably also gain more and more value out of Prefect
    btw if you contact sales@prefect.io we can figure out the best plan based on your use case
