https://cloud.candle.dev offers 512mb free (upgradable to 1gb for free). It is persistent storage space that can be used for hosting a sqlite database. The free compute allows building an API to interact with the data.

I think the max is for concurrent connections, not for total connections.

I think the max is for concurrent connections, not for total connections.

I agree. The number of maximum concurrent connections (3) is crucial because we frequently encounter the 'Too many connections' error as the limit could be easily reached.

Unfortunately ElephantSQL left the free plan. He can leave the table/list and the others can join.

planetscale.com

Discontinued.

2 good options that are free in 2024:

  1. Upstash
  2. Turso

My personal suggestion is Turso. It is SQLite, but does the job perfectly. The free tier is very generous.
