Crane: Heroku's new $50 per month production database
May 08, 2012 by Matt Manning
From the Heroku Postgres Blog:
"Last week we launched our dev plan, a free database designed for development and testing. Today, we are launching into public beta two new plans: Crane and Kappa. These plans are part of our production tier, offering the same monitoring, operations, support, and data protection features as our more expensive plans.
Crane is available for $50 per month and features a 400 mb cache. Kappa is $100 per month and features a 800 mb cache. "
Crane and Kappa can be provisioned immediately via the Heroku Postgres website or via our command line tool:
