  • Which plan should I choose?

    Developer: This plan offers a free trial for most of the products provided by LeanCloud. If you are still working on prototyping or developing your app, this is the best choice for you, but as soon as you are ready to launch your app, you may want to upgrade to the Business Plan to prevent your app from reaching daily usage limits.

    Business: This plan offers high performance and high availability that are good for commercial-level apps. If you already have your app launched, this might be the most suitable plan for you. To prevent our services from being abused by a small number of apps, which could affect other apps in the same cluster, apps with Business Plans still have thread limits applied to them. You can ask us to increase the thread limit of your app by submitting a ticket with justification. However, if you expect that the number of requests your app handles every day would vary significantly, you may consider the Enterprise Plan.

    Enterprise: This plan offers tailored solutions for enterprises with custom needs. You can choose either standalone clusters or private clusters for your app. If you go for standalone clusters, part or all of your app’s services would be deployed on the servers provided by LeanCloud. Your app would be no different than an app with the Business Plan, except that you get to decide the capacity of your app. For private clusters, they are suitable for apps that expect fast growth in the short term and need high capacities. If you choose private clusters for your app, the LeanCloud services for this app would be deployed on the servers of your choice, while LeanCloud still offers maintenance services for them. This is suitable when you need to integrate our services into existing legacy systems or require the data in your app to be stored at specific locations.

  • Can I switch between different plans at any time?

    Apps with Business Plans and Developer Plans are hosted on different clusters, so there is a cost on us to migrate data between them. If you just upgraded your app from the Developer Plan to the Business Plan, you have to wait for 30 days until you can switch back. This only applies to the cases when you are making the switch on your own and doesn’t apply to those when the switch is made automatically according to certain rules.

  • Which services do I need to pay for? Which services are free?

    Paid services include database, file storage, CDN, instant messaging, SMS, and LeanEngine. You can use a certain amount of each if you are using the Developer Plan. We also offer several free services, including push notifications, user management, and in-app socializing.

  • For the Business Plan, what does it mean by "minimum charge"?

    The minimum charge covers our cost of technical support and daily operation. For apps with Business Plans, if you spend less than the minimum charge on a day, the minimum charge will be billed for that day. Otherwise, the actual charge will be billed.

  • For instant messaging, how do you count DAU? If a user logs in multiple times a day, does it count as a single DAU?

    As long as the user uses the same ID, it will be considered as a single DAU.

  • For LeanStorage, how do you count the number of requests?

    The SDK designed for each language interacts with the same REST API, and the time REST API gets called will be used to calculate the price. In general, a single operation for creating objects, updating objects, or querying objects constitutes a single request. Some SDKs accept batch operations or a single operation containing multiple steps, and these operations would constitute multiple requests.

  • What does it mean by "threads"? How many threads do I need?

    Thread means the number of requests the cloud can process at a time. In general, 3 threads would be enough for most apps to work smoothly.

    Assuming that the response time of the cloud is 20 milliseconds, the cloud can process 1,000 / 20 = 50 requests on each thread every second.

    For an app with 10,000 DAU, if each user generates 50 requests every day and all these users use the app within the same 2 hours on a day, there will be 10,000 × 50 / 2 / 60 / 60 = 69 requests happening in every second. Therefore, only 69 / 50 = 1.15 threads are needed to process all the requests happening in these 2 hours.

    With the possible peaks considered, you should consider having certain redundancy in your app. For apps with Business Plans, 60 threads are provided by default. This should be sufficient for most use cases, but you can contact us to have it adjusted if needed.

  • For the Developer Plan, what will happen if I use more resources than allocated?

    For LeanStorage APIs, if more than 30,000 requests are made to an app on a day, further requests will be rejected with error code 429. The limit gets reset every day.

    For Threads, if all 3 of them are occupied, further requests will be rejected with error code 429. The limit gets removed when at least one of them is freed up.

    For Instant Messaging, when DAU reaches 500, users will not be able to log in. The limit gets reset every day.

    For SMS and File Storage, both of them get charged according to actual usage. Apps with Developer Plans can use them without any restrictions.
