Is vector search feature paid or free

I thought the cost of vector search has already been included in the cluster fee.

Hi @Kevin_An,

Vector Search is free, you can even use it in a M0 Free Forever Cluster. As Free Clusters are limited to 500MB of data, you’ll end up needing a dedicated cluster if you hit that data limit, but not because of using Vector Search.

We also have recently launched Dedicated Vector Search nodes in case the use of your cluster CPU is too high.

But again: Vector Search is free to use.

Thanks for feedback. Actually Vector Search is free, if I want to use Dedicated Vector Search nodes, that needs to be paid, right? The same goes for Atlas Search.

Hi @Kevin_An,

Yes

Yes, you’re getting separated nodes from the ones that run your Database to do all the vector indexing, etc.

The same goes for Atlas Search.

Exactly: free, but you can also get dedicated nodes if in your use case people are full-text searching all the time and your nodes are at a 100% CPU usage all the time.

Hope this helps!
