$40/month is super cheap for running a backend for a business. However, there’s like 5 different hobby/side-projects that I’d like to prototype and ship, just as proof-of-concepts. But I can’t justify spending $200/month to host those projects. The reality is that 1mb/day isn’t enough. One project I’d like to do is import my data from https://roamresearch.com into a Dgraph instance, and then build a ‘Andy-mode’ UI, but the export from my Roam graph is well over 1mb, so I can’t even import it into a free DgraphCloud instance.
Previously I made a comment about the lack of a decent hobby-plan not being an issue. However, it’s obvious to me that this is actually a problem.
I’d happy pay $5-10/month for mini-instances if they weren’t so severely limited.
