The above plans are per cluster. When you first create your account without entering credit card, your first database will be in Free tier. When you enter credit card, your database will be upgraded to pay-as-you-go automatically.
Upstash has a free tier with some limitations. Free tier limits 10K messages per day and max 256Mb retention size. A user can create max 10 partitions in the Free tier. When you enter your credit card, your cluster will be upgraded to pay-as-you-go plan and limits will be removed.
You do not need to enter your credit card to use Upstash in Free Tier.
If you want to try Upstash paid and enterprise plans, we can offer Free Trials. Email us at email@example.com
Pay-as-you-go pricing model is serverless. You pay for the amount of messages (Kafka messages) processed by your Kafka cluster. The storage cost is charged separately. The data transfer is free as long as your usage is under the daily bandwidth quota.
100.000 messages cost $0.6 for a multi replica cluster.
Request cost of Cluster = Total message count / 100.000 X $0.6
Storage cost of Cluster (monthly) = Average Data Size (in GB) X $0.25
Total Cost = Request Cost + Storage Cost
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 cluster through the all month, you pay $0.25 monthly. If your cluster 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).
The total storage is the sum of storage in all replicas. So 1MB message data will total up to 3MB in a multi replica cluster.
Max Monthly Usage (Price)
Upstash limits your monthly cost for a cluster to a max price in pay-as-you-go plan. Your single replica cluster can not cost more than $120 monthly ($360 for multi zone clusters). After your cluster exceeds the max usage cost, your database will be rate limited.
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 cluster 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you think your application needs higher limits.
|Max Messages Per Second||1000||This is the number of messages that you can produce/consume per second.|
|Max Message Size||1 MB||This is the max size of a single message you can produce.|
|Max Partitions||100||This is the max total number of partitions you can create in the plan.|
|Max Daily Bandwidth||50 GB||The max data transfer (bandwidth) limit per day.|
All limits are per cluster. If you think, your use case will exceed the above quotas, contact us (email@example.com) to update the quotas or check our Enterprise Plans where the limits are higher.
Topics which are idle (no message is produced or consumed) for more than 1.5 times max-retention-time will be deleted automatically.
If your database exceeds the maximum daily bandwidth limit multiple times in a month, we will notify you and recommend upgrading to one of our upper-tier plans. If we do not receive a response and your database continues to exceed the bandwidth limit, we will charge you for the data transfer costs at the rate specified in our Pro/Enterprise plan's network pricing.
Upstash has three plans for customers with advanced needs. Different from pay-as-you-go plan, Enterprise plans have fixed monthly prices.
|Plan Limit||Pro 2K||Pro 10K||Enterprise|
|Max Messages Per Second||2K||10K||Custom|
|Max Message Size||10MB||10MB||Custom|
|Max Retention Size||infinite||infinite||infinite|
|Max Retention Time||infinite||infinite||infinite|
|Max Daily Bandwidth||1TB||infinite||infinite|
|Monthly Price Per Cluster||$320||$520||Contact us|
All Pro/Enterprise plans have multi-replica. Even if your first cluster is single-replica, replication is enabled with the upgrade.
Pro/Enterprise plans are per cluster (not per account). You can have clusters on different plans in the same account and each is charged separately. Pro/Enterprise plans have a minimum term of 1 month, afterwards you can cancel any time.
How to Upgrade
Apply for an Pro/Enterprise plan in your cluster details page in the console. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have custom needs or questions.
Pro/Enterprise Plans Network & Storage Costs
In Pro/Enterprise plans, in addition to plan price, you will be charged for storage and network usage costs.
You can enable VPC Peering to minimize network (data transfer) cost. Contact us email@example.com for details.
Storage cost calculation is the same as pay-as-you-go plan which
$0.25 per GB-month.
Note that the total storage is the sum of storage in all replicas. So 1MB data will total up to 3MB in a multi replica cluster.
Network costs (data transfer prices) are as below:
$0.1per GB in.
$0.05per GB out.
The above pricing assumes that the clients and cluster are in the same cloud provider. If not, you may be charged at a higher rate proportional to what cloud providers charge us. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The following are special features which we are provided on your request. Please email us to learn about their pricing.
|IP Whitelisting||You can set the IP addresses which will have access to your database.|
|TLS Mutual Authentication||mTLS ensures two-way authentication where both client and server authenticate each other at the same time in the authentication protocol.|
|VPC Peering||VPC Peering enables you to connect to Upstash from your own VPC using private IP. Cluster and your application can run in the same subnet which also minimizes data transfer costs.|
|AWS Private Link||AWS Private link helps you to access to Upstash Cluster with a private network link inside AWS infrastructure.|
|Encryption at rest||Upstash encrypts the block storage where your data is persisted and stored.|
|Professional Support||Professional Support includes dedicated service desk and Slack/Discord channel with response time SLAs.|
