High Serverless Instance WPU Pricing

We recently launched a product with a couple of active users but we’re already hit by a WPU cost of $329.59 (does indexing really have an effect?) plus an RPU cost of $86.42 (with correct indexes) totaling $421.84 in just 1 month. This is not sustainable for a startup, we’re intrigued by the fact that Serverless instances allow us to start small and save cost, but the reverse is the case.

Hi Bilyamin_Adam

Let me contact you over private message for more details on your cluster and your workload patterns. Here are more details on our pricing model in the mean time. https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/billing/serverless-instance-costs/
