Fly App Pricing

Our pricing is designed to let you run small applications for free, and scale costs affordably as your needs grow. With this in mind, application services are billed individually, based on usage, with a free allowance of resources to get you started.

Billing is per organization. If you want to run more free apps, just make another organization and invite your friends.

Free Allowances

VM: shared-cpu 2,340 hours per month Run 3 shared-cpu-1x VMs with 256MB RAM full time.
Volumes 3GB Provision 3GB of persistent volumes for permanent storage
Bandwidth 160GB per month See outbound data transfer for regional breakdown
Anycast IPs Unlimited IPv6, 1 IPv4 per active app Additional IPv4 addresses are $2 per month
Certificates 10 active certificates Add 10 certificates to your apps

If your organization uses more than the free allowance of any service, additional resources are charged as follows:

PostgreSQL Clusters

The fly pg create command will install a PostgreSQL cluster in your organization. PostgreSQL clusters are just "apps" made up of VMs, persistent volumes, and (possibly) extra memory. We bill only for the resources PostgreSQL clusters use.

The price of a postgres cluster is (vm_price + persistent_volume_price + additional_memory_price) * vm_count. Here are some examples:

Size VM Price Volume Price Total Price
shared-cpu-1x10GB volumes 256MB RAM 2 x ~$1.94/mo 2 x ~$1.50/mo ~$6.88/mo
shared-cpu-1x40GB volumes 2GB RAM 2 x ~$10.70/mo 2 x ~$6/mo ~$33.40/mo
dedicated-cpu-2x100GB volumes 4GB RAM 2 x ~$62/mo 2 x ~$15/mo ~$154/mo
dedicated-cpu-8x500GB volumes 64GB RAM 2 x ~$558/mo 2 x ~$75/mo ~$1,266/mo
