Building and testing projects on DataFire.io is free. Deploying projects
on your own hardware with the MIT-licensed
open source framework is also free.
Charges are only incurred when you create a production deployment on
Production deployments are billed based on usage, measured in Gigabyte-seconds (GB-s). This measures a combination of how much memory your deployment uses, how many times it gets invoked, and how long each invocation takes to run. Every user gets 500 GB-s for free each month - this is about enough to run a simple task every hour.
|Gigabyte-seconds per month||Price||Example|
|Up to 500 GB-s||Free||Ping a URL every hour, or send ~20 emails per day|
|Up to 100k GB-s||$9||Sync data to a spreadsheet every 5 minutes|
|Up to 500k GB-s||$29||Scrape dozens of websites every minute|
|Up to 1500k GB-s||$79||Memory-intensive data-processing and computation|
|Over 1500k GB-s||$4.20 per 100k GB-s||Anything!|
DataFire offers three different deployment sizes to suit the needs of each individual project. Larger deployments will use more GB-s per second of computation performed.
Projects with low CPU and memory requirements can use the Small deployment size, which will incur the lowest costs. Memory- and CPU-intensive projects will want to use the Medium or Large deployments, which cost more per second of computation performed.
