Do you have questions?
What is Database-as-a-Service?
Cloud Backend provides a Cloud SQL database (100% compatible with MySQL) with high availability and security. You can create tables, add, modify, or delete lines in the back office, or use simple and powerfull REST APIs to execute SQL queries on your database.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept debit and all major credit cards (through STRIPE). When you process a payment with us, your card's information does not get stored in our database; we only keep a card fingerprint in order to renew your subscriptions, if needed.
What is Function-as-a-Service?
Instead of renting a dedicated server or virtual machine, deploy your code on the cloud and forget about all maintenance and security issues. You just write your cloud functions in either Node.js, Java, .Net, Python, or Go. More coming soon (PHP, Perl, ...)
Can I upgrade to another plan?
Of course! You can upgrade your plan at any time during your subscription. Just open your project's dashboard, click on Backend, and finally on "Upgrade".
What are tables and rows
All our offers include an unlimited amount of tables, which are your are a database's representation of collections, such as users, leads, orders, etc.
Depending on your plan, you get a maximum amount of rows to store across all of your tables.
How do I cancel my subscription?
To cancel your subscrpition, open your AppDrag dashboard, select your project, click on Backend, and finally on "cancel".
What does "API calls per minute" mean?
That would be the number of API queries you can make in a minute before reaching your limit. API calls include both SQL queries to the Cloud DB, and Cloud Functions. If you're expect more or less usage, you can, at any time, upgrade or downgrade instantly, whatever matches your requirements.
How long are your contracts?
All plans can be paid monthly or annually. You can, of course, cancel your plan renewal at any time.
What is a scheduled task?
Cloud functions can be scheduled every X minutes, every day, week or month. It's super usefull when you want to execute some reccurent tasks like: Do X every monday at 3AM. Do Y first day of the month or Do Z every 5 minutes every day. Based on your Cloud Backend plan you have a certain amount of scheduled tasks that you can configure.
What are transactional emails credits?
Our plans include transactional emails credits, you can use them to send email notifications to your users or yourself Instead of using an external SMTP server to send emails. It's ways easier and you can start to send emails from your cloud functions in few seconds with our NPM package.
What does "Seconds of API Time" mean?
SQL queries and Cloud Functions take computation time to execute. Based on your queries and functions, computing time will vary. Computing time is billed per slices of 100 milliseconds (ms) .
Example: If you want to execute a query that takes 100ms to execute 5,000 times, you'll be billed for 500,000 ms (5,000 x 100). Divide that by 1000, and that gives you 500 seconds.
