This is a useful resource, but both Amazon DynamoDB and Oracle Cloud required a payment method. That should probably be noted in the limitations section.

@bmaupin Thanks for the list of providers! https://www.db4free.net/ might be good too.
@cpurdy it seems infinityfree doesn't allow connections from external applications on the free tier https://forum.infinityfree.net/docs?ascending=false&category=20&topic=49339

MongoDB has a 16MB BSON limit. This means you can't have documents over 16MB being transferred. Should probably be a limitation for MongoDB. Means I can't use it for sending a users screen data to the database for me to then retrieve it (Was to be used as a monitoring tool to tell when people are off task). This list is still really helpful though, thanks.

IBM Cloud DB2 - Limitation

However, users are asked to re-extend their free account every 90 days by email. If you do not re-extend, your free account is cleaned out a further 90 days later.

@nullxx seems like they changed the free db storage to 100MB. Are you using it in production?

Yes, in production for little projects. I don’t need more.

No platform can match Heroku managed Postgres free services, It's very sad they are ending it.

Maybe also add influx (limits)? Though it's very limited, but useable for testing and private use, I guess.

Seems like the free plan is available only for the first 90 days. But it seems to have fair prices to be fair!
