Does Managed Database consumes droplet bandwith?

The billing page says you don’t charge Managed Database for bandwidth, but does it counts toward the droplet bandwidth, since it runs on it?

Also, do we have any other charge on Managed Database other than the monthly plan cost? Like charge for queries.

Hello @driftingnavyurchin

The monthly costs for the Managed database product are listed and no additional costs should be applied.

Note that we’re required by law to apply taxes in some countries. Click hereto learn whether we collect taxes in your country, what the tax rate is, etc.

Hi there,

Inbound and outbound data transfer is included in the price of the Database clusters, and DigitalOcean does not not bill Managed Databases for additional bandwidth.

You can find the specific Managed Databases pricing page here:
