Latest Updates

  • We have released a new catalog of pricing plans for App Platform. The new plans offer lower pricing on instances with dedicated CPUs and better egress bandwidth allowance. All previous plans will eventually be deprecated. We strongly recommend you use the new plans when creating or upgrading apps.

  • App Platform developer databases now default to use PostgreSQL 14 upon creation instead of PostgreSQL 12. You can create a database that uses PostgreSQL 16 by specifying the engine version in your app’s spec, like this:

    - engine: PG
      name: db-example
      version: "16"

    • initial_delay_seconds: Minimum 0 seconds, maximum 3600 seconds
    • period_seconds: Minimum 1 second, maximum 300 seconds
    • timeout_seconds: Minimum 1 second, maximum 120 seconds
    • success_threshold: Minimum 1 successful check, maximum 50 successful check
    • failure_threshold: Minimum 1 failed check, maximum 50 failed checks
