Plans and pricing

Databases are billed based on time consumed. You are not billed for an entire month unless your database is provisioned that entire time.

Pricing varies based on:

  • The instance you provision.
  • The amount of storage.
  • The region you provision in.

Below you will find the pricing by instance size for the East region of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Storage is an additional US$0.10 per GB to the total rate per month.

Example - AWS US East Standard-8 instance with 100 GB storage:

US$140.00 + $0.10 * 100 = US$150.00/month

AWS Storage details

For AWS the underlying storage leverages GP2 disks. This storage provides both:

  • A sustained IOPS level
  • Burst capabilities to the max allowed of your instance

Sustained IOPS translate to your storage size provisioned, at a rate of 3 IOPS per 1 GB of storage. As an example a 1TB disk would have roughly 3k IOPS.


All storage is provisioned at a rate of 3 IOPS per 1 GB. For sustained usage. All instances receive a burst capacity of their maximum amount of IOPS per the instance type. For burst IOPS the limit relates to the instance that is provisioned. You can see the exact level in the tiers section above.

A few examples to highlight IO performance:

Hobby-4 with 100 GB disk

  • Sustained IOPS of 300
  • Burst capability of 17,500 IOPS

Standard-32 with 2 TB disk

  • Sustained IOPS of 6,144
  • Burst capability of 18,750 IOPS
