These are the most common questions asked by our users.

No, we bill in Node hours. If your cost is 95$ a month and you run it for five hours in total through the month you'll be charged 63 cents, for example. This is very useful for scaling-in and scaling-out as well as CI/CD or test integration.
Primarily, this is support. We provide a guaranteed SLA and very high level of support on these packages. Additionally, we store your data for a longer period of time and provide additional functionality.
You can change plans any time you like! There is no lock in and if you want to switch to free you can whenever you need.
Yes! We provide it free of charge to enable small businesses to design and deliver their applications the way they need to in order to scale.
No, once you pay for one Node your account becomes a Paid account. This means you get additional data retention, support, more functionality on Nodes, etc. Remember, we bill by the hour so if you have QC, dev, testing Nodes you don't have to pay for the full month of usage.
