Many developers have contacted us in the past months asking for a free version of Xeround’s database-as-a-service — and we’re happy to oblige!
We’re excited to announce the much anticipated release of “Xeround FREE” - a free version of our popular cloud database. Xeround FREE provides MySQL users with a zero-management, simple, highly available – and best of all completely free - cloud database solution.
CHILL with Your Database in the Cloud
Rather than having to install, configure and maintain a MySQL database in the cloud, you can now easily create your free cloud database with just one click.
With database creation and management out of the way — you can focus on your code rather than on the IT side of things.
Xeround FREE is great for starting out with your database in the cloud. It is suitable for on-going development, testing and staging purposes, as well as for smaller web applications. Available up to 10MB at no charge, Xeround FREE is initially offered on our Amazon EC2 US-East datacenter and as an Heroku add-on, expanding to additional regions/clouds in the future.
Free as in Beer
Xeround FREE is completely free. Forever.
Every Xeround user is entitled to one concurrent Xeround FREE database instance.
Xeround Cloud Database New Editions
For customers that require larger database sizes, higher levels of scalability, additional support and SLA, we are announcing two additional editions of our cloud database solution: Xeround BASIC and Xeround PRO.
Xeround BASIC is suitable for medium-size applications looking for a cost-effective, plug-&-play, highly available database solution in the cloud. Xeround BASIC is limited up to 250MB and is offered in tiered pricing starting at $17/month.
Xeround PRO (our commercial version that launched last June) is suitable for mission-critical, larger-scale applications that require unlimited scalability, high availability SLA, scheduled backups and more. Xeround PRO already has more than 300 paying customers and boasts a complete end-to-end solution for seamlessly running MySQL applications in the cloud. Xeround PRO is offered in a pay-per-use model starting at $0.21 for GB/hour of data (with a minimum charge for 0.5GB), and $0.43 for GB of data transfer.
Both Xeround BASIC and Xeround PRO are available on Xeround’s datacenters on Amazon EC2 in the US and in Europe, Rackspace and on the Heroku platform.
The first 30 days of using Xeround BASIC or Xeround PRO are free!
To start your free trial register to Xeround, log in to your account and choose “Create New” – selecting either “Xeround BASIC” or “Xeround PRO” from the list of available plans. The 30-day free trial is in addition to your Xeround FREE database instance.
Xeround’s new editions provide you the flexibility to choose the most suitable plan for your needs.
