SkySQL follows a usage-based pricing model – customers are charged for what they use, and nothing more. Specifically, customers are charged hourly for compute (database instances) and by the gigabyte (GB) for storage and networking (data persistence and replication). SkySQL customers are billed on a monthly basis, and can cancel at any time. Database instances are billed by instance size for both vCPU and memory, e.g. a Sky-2×4 instance (2 vCPU, 4GB memory) is priced at $0.1318/hour, $96.21/month. To see the complete price of a database that is right for you, please use our SkySQL configurator in the product. For 1- or 3-year commit pricing, please contact us.
SkySQL uses regional persistent disks (SSDs) and low-cost object storage to store data depending on whether databases are created for transactions, analytics or both. In addition, if replicated databases are created, their replicas are deployed to separate zones for high availability, and thus subject to egress fees. The storage and networking costs of databases are based on usage, and are passed through directly to customers.
