I understand that the App Platform is backed by a CDN. However, in the website, there is no mention of the per GB storage pricing for the App Platform. Care to elaborate? Thanks

Hi @azrinsani,

The per GB local storage is included in the container price. The local filesystem on the host instances running App Platform containers is ephemeral. For persistent storage, you must use other forms of persistent storage such as Spaces or Managed Databases. The local disk should only be used as temporary storage, it will be removed and not recoverable when redeploy. Also, block storage volumes are not currently supported. You can refer to the below link for pricing and App Platform release notes.

  • Ah ok, so basically there is no limit to the storage but it is temporary. Maybe we can use it for a temporary cache. But when the container is destroyed, everything dissapears. So it’s best to store everything in spaces or managed database. Am I correct to assume this?

    • Yes, you are correct that your container’s local storage is temporary and will be erased when the container is redeployed. So, you can utilize managed Databases or Spaces for persistence storage in your Apps deployed in the App Platform.
