Astra DB plan options

Serverless databases

DataStax Astra DB offers a serverless database, which is an elastic cloud-native database that scales with your workload. You can scale your compute and storage capabilities independently, allowing you to focus on developing your application and less on your infrastructure costs.

On 4 March 2021, all Free, Serverless (Beta), and Dev and Test databases were migrated to the serverless pay as you go plan with a $25 monthly credit that is refreshed monthly.
Astra DB offers two plans in the Astra DB console: pay as you go and annual commitment. Each of these plans are billed according to Astra DB pricing, which is based on read and write requests, data storage, and data transfer. If you need more options than the pay as you go or annual plan, contact a DataStax Business Development Representative.

Limitations

Serverless databases don’t support VPC peering, multi-region databases, or materialized views. Our team is working to offer these feature for serverless databases soon.

Classic databases

This information applies to only classic databases.

Classic databases can no longer be created through the Astra DB console. We recommend migrating your database to our current serverless option, which could save you money and allow you to manage your compute and storage capabilities separately.

Dev and Test with Shared Resources

Dev and Test databases offer an entry point for developers. Only select AWS and GCP regions are available for the Dev and Test databases. Dev and Test databases don’t support VPC peering or multi-region databases.
