TLDR Hidenori inquired about the free tier for Typesense and auto-scaling. Jason explained the limitations of free instances and auto-scaling's reaction time.
Nice to meet you,
We are considering implementing “Typesense” into our service.
So, we have a question.
How many free instances with 0.5 RAM can be launched in conjunction with paid instances?
We also plan to offer a free trial for the service we are deploying, and this may change the offerings based on the above information.
The free tier is across all instances, for a total of 720 hours.
So if you provision 1 instance, you'll get 720 hours
If you provision 2 instances, you'll get 720 / 2 = 360 hours per instance, etc
Also, the free tier is not unlimited. It's 720 hours for the lifetime of the account.
So it's more like a trial, then a perpetual free tier
I see, thank you very much. I understand.
So, how quickly does auto-scaling take effect?
Auto scaling requires a consistent breach of recommended thresholds for 12 hours continuously
So it’s not meant for spiky traffic, but more for gradual growth of data over a period of time
I apologize for the delayed response.
Thank you very much.
