Data options: Data Plus and original
Your organization's price per GB of ingested data varies depending on which data option your organization has: Data Plus or our Original Data option. The Data Plus option offers advanced data capabilities for optimized performance, scale, security, and governance. A New Relic organization can have only one option at a time.
Here's a table with comparisons of the two options. Prices and limits are monthly, and prices are in USD.

What counts as billable ingested data?
In the context of the New Relic pricing plan, "ingested data" refers to the data saved to New Relic by your organization after we apply various data trimming and data transformation rules. In other words, it's not the amount of raw data sent to New Relic, but the size of the data that actually ends up being stored.
In general, data that we generate to provide our features doesn't count towards your ingest. Examples of features and feature-related data that don't count towards ingest include:
- Basic alerting functionality and applied intelligence features. For example,
NrAiIncident, an event used to generate these features, doesn't count towards ingest.
- Golden metrics (for more on golden metrics, see our entity definitions).
- Synthetic monitor checks. For details on synthetics billing, see Synthetics limits and pricing.
- Usage and billing tracking data (for example,
- Data related to account administration (for example,
To understand your usage, see the usage UI.
Other calculation details
- In the context of our pricing model, a GB is defined as 1 billion bytes.
- Monthly data ingested is rounded down to the nearest integer. For example, if your account uses 100.9 GBs during a month, that's counted as 100 GBs.
