Why is App Platform data transfer so low and only per app not container?
I was playing with the app platform and the pricing seems weird here..
1) Why is it only 100 gig / month (pro tier)
2) Why is is based on app and not container
As stated, why is it only 100/gig a month when basic droplets offer like 5 TB.. what would cause the app platform to have such a low transfer limit in comparison to a standard droplet?
Second, why do I pay 12.00 / month per container but add another 12 / month I don’t get another 100 gig transfer.. this seems backwards, what am I paying 12 per container for if I only get computer and not the extra transfer that I would if I had 2 apps with 1 container?
Also, overage pricing seems way out of whack.. .10 / gig .. To get the same 5tb of transfer you get with a standard droplet would cost $500.00 I don’t understand this at all, you can run a standard droplet with 5tb transfer for like 10 bucks a month but on app platform you pay 500.. Am I missing something here?
Don’t get me wrong, I understand managed / unmanaged but really.. This should be changed to be closer to the droplet transfers and lower the overages, I can’t see any serious production application using app platform due to the price when you can just create a docker image and roll your own for a fraction of the cost, I mean, again correct me if I’m wrong here but based on what I can see
App Platform price : 2 containers 1gig / 1 vcpu @ 5 tb transfer = 524 / Month
Regular docker : 2 container 2vcpu / 4 gig ram @ 4tb each = 40 / Month
Am I wrong here?
