Per-Terabyte pricing is ideal for use cases where analysis of data has a much higher value to the organization, and analytical queries must be run on a regular basis with the highest performance.
Per-node pricing is ideal for use cases where large volumes of historic data are held, but queries are only run against this data on an ad hoc basis with fewer performance requirements or SLA requirements.
