Additional DetailsScale plan offers additional database servers at a cost of $100/month for each additional billable server. In general, each 1 Postgres server that is running (i.e. one parent postgres process) is considered 1 billable server. In the case of cloud providers these are often called "instances". Depending on the subscription plan you are on, you may have a special price for replica servers (also called "readers", or "followers"), which is implemented by multiplying the replica count with a multiplier (e.g. 0.5), with the total rounded up. Annual plans are available and come at a discount compared to the monthly plans Contact us for custom requirements
