Simple pricing, predictable costs

Cloud pricing can be a moving target. Pricing structures vary considerably, making it difficult for you to budget accordingly.

Neo4j Aura Enterprise is priced in a different way. Pricing is simple: You pay only for what you need with simple capacity-based pricing. You’re in control. With flat hourly rates, costs are predictable and transparent. Costs are perfectly aligned with your usage, with no waste from excess capacity.

There are no extra fees for compute, storage, I/O or backups, just your chosen RAM capacity, at flat hourly rates. With Neo4j Aura Enterprise, you pay through your cloud marketplace. This means you deploy easily, draw down on your committed spend with your cloud vendor, and get a unified bill across Aura and your other cloud services. At the end of the day, it’s easy to procure and manage your spend.
