CockroachDB Serverless
Pricing Concepts Explained

CockroachDB Serverless presents a forever free database with upper limits for storage and transactional volume per month.
Below we describe how this works.

Free Forever

Yes, it is free forever.
For use up to 5GB of storage and 250M RUs per month!

No Credit Card
Required

Sign up with an email address or use your github account to get started.

Storage

Storage is the disk space for storing your data in the cluster. Note: We do not charge you for the replicas of data we store to provide high availability and resilience.

Request Units

A request unit measures the amount of compute and IOPs each query will incur. Every query has varying requirements for resources and we rate them on the backend.

These amounts are reset each month.

Never Overspend

When you configure your cluster you define a “Spend Limit”, which we use to regulate your usage of RUs and storage over the month. We will ensure that you have at least about 8M RUs to use per day (this is actually 100RU/second) and then some additional capacity so you can handle burst activity from day one of the month.

Here are three scenarios that might help explain.

SCENARIO 1

Steady usage every moment
across the entire month

SCENARIO 2

Heavy weekend usage but
steady across the month

SCENARIO 3

Heavy use early & cluster ensures at
least 100RUs/sec for remainder of month
