InfluxDB Cloud pricing plans
InfluxDB Cloud offers two plans, which provide different data and resource usage limits:
All new InfluxDB Cloud accounts start with Free Plan that limits data and resource usage. Use this plan as much and as long as you want within the Free Plan limits below.
- Data In: 5.1MB every 5 minutes
- Query: 300MB every 5 minutes
- Series cardinality: 10,000
- Storage: 30-day data retention
To write historical data older than 30 days or retain data for more than 30 days, upgrade to the Cloud Usage-Based plan.
- 5 dashboards
- 5 tasks
- 2 buckets
- 2 checks
- 2 notification rules
- Unlimited Slack notification endpoints
To raise rate limits, upgrade to a Usage-based Plan.
The Usage-based Plan offers more flexibility and ensures you only pay for what you use.
- Ingest batch size: 50MB
Soft data limits
To protect against any intentional or unintentional harm, the Usage-Based Plan includes soft limits. To request higher soft data limits, contact InfluxData Support.
- Data In: 300MB every 5 minutes
- Query: 3000MB every 5 minutes
- Series cardinality: 1,000,000 initial limit (higher limits available; contact InfluxData Support)
- Storage: Unlimited retention
Set your retention period to unlimited or up to 1 year by updating a bucket’s retention period in the InfluxDB UI, or set a custom retention period using the
The Usage-Based Plan uses the following pricing vectors to calculate InfluxDB Cloud billing costs:
- Data out is the total sum of the data (measured in GB) returned to the user to answer a query, also known as data transfer costs.
- Query count is the total number of individual query operations:
- Each individual operation—including queries, tasks, alerts, notifications, and Data Explorer activity—is one billable query operation.
- Refreshing a dashboard with multiple cells will incur multiple query operations.
- Failed operations aren’t counted.
- Data In is the amount of data you’re writing into InfluxDB (measured in MB/second).
- Storage is the amount of data you’re storing in InfluxDB (measured in GB/hour).
