Free Tier#

Upstash has a free tier with some limitations. Free tier limits 10K commands per day and total 256Mb data size. A user can create only one database in Free tier. When you enter your credit card, your database will be upgraded and limits will be removed.

You do not need to enter your credit card to use Upstash in Free Tier.

Serverless Pricing#

Upstash's default pricing model is serverless. You pay for the amount of commands (Redis commands), you send to the database. Because the persistence is enabled by default, there is also the storage cost.

100.000 commands cost 0.2 USD. 
Request cost of a Database = Total command count / 100.000 X $0.2 
Storage cost of Database (monthly) = Average Data Size (in GB) X $0.25  
Total Cost = Request Cost + Storage Cost

Operational commands like AUTH, INFO, PING, QUIT, COMMAND are not charged.

Even if you do not access your data, we have to keep it persistent in Cloud Provider's block storage (eg AWS EBS, S3) for durability. We take daily average of your data size and multiply with 0.25 at the end of the month. If you have 1 GB data in your database through the all month, you pay $0.25 monthly. If your database is empty in the first 29 days of the month and it expands to 30GB on the last day of the month; then still you pay $0.25 for that month (30GB / 30day X 0.25).

If you are using your database as a cache; then it is a good practice to set a timeout (EXPIRE) for your keys to minimize the cost.

Max Monthly (Ceiling) Price#

Upstash guarantees that your monthly cost for a database will not exceed the ceiling price. Your database can not cost more than $120 monthly ($240 if multizone replication enabled). Ceiling price prevents bad surprises on billing.

Edge Caching#

Edge caching has a separate pricing. It costs $0.4 per 100K Edge calls. More precisely, if a request is served from the edge cache, it will cost $0.000004. But if it misses the cache, then the request will be served by the origin database. In this case, its cost will be $0.000006 ($0.000004 edge request cost + $0.000002 database request cost). Edge caching is not included in ceiling price. In other words, your cost may exceed max price if you use Edge caching.

Pay-as-you-go Plan Quotas#

Pay as you go plan has soft limits which are introduced to ensure the fair use of resources among our users. Quotas are soft limits. When your database reaches the quota we do not stop your service but we will contact you and ask you to upgrade your service to an upper plan.


Quotas are not technical limits. They can be customized on your request. Contact us ( if you think your application needs higher limits.

Max Commands Per Second1000This is the number of commands that your database can process per second. If you exceed this limit, we contact you.
Max Record Size100 MbThis is the maximum size per your entry. The entry can be String, List, Set, Hash etc.
Max Data Size Per DB100GbWhen limit is reached, write commands may be rejected. Read and delete commands will not be affected. You can delete some entries to allow further writes. Also you can consider setting TTL (expiration time) for your keys.
Max Concurrent Connections Per DB1000When the limit is reached, your idle connections may be terminated. You will not experience any issue unless all of your connections are active. Even in that case; most Redis clients reconnect automatically. You can use REST API if you expect very high number of concurrent connections.
Max Request Size1MbThe max size of a single request/command.
Max Daily Bandwidth50GBThe max outbound data transfer (bandwidth) limit per day.
Max Daily Edge Bandwidth10GBThe max outbound data transfer (bandwidth) limit per day from Edge locations when Edge Caching is enabled.

All limits are per database. If you think, your use case will exceed the above quotas, check our Enterprise Plan where you can customize the limits.

Enterprise Plan#

If your application requires advanced needs, then Upstash Enterprise will fit better as you can customize it for your use case.
