2023 new plans and pricing update
While building Platform.sh and our product, value, and quality are central to every decision we make. Over the last 7 years, our product has evolved greatly adding many features and functionalities that specifically address both value and quality - at the best possible price. However, we are not immune to the current economic conditions and inflation. The environment keeps evolving around us and providers have significantly raised our costs, especially in the last year. Therefore, to keep providing the same value and quality offering, we will adjust our prices from January 1st, 2023. Our philosophy when revamping the pricing was to offer a reasonable increase of roughly 10% on average across all our plans (in each tier) while keeping them simple and predictable.
We are also announcing the introduction of new plans in January 2023 which many of our customers have been waiting for - including high memory options and an Essential plan. The Essential plan is a new entry-level production plan introducing a lower-cost alternative for smaller workloads to provide our clients with greater choice and cost efficiency. Meanwhile, the new high-memory plans will allow those customers in need of additional memory to simply purchase the increased memory their application needs, with no need to upgrade to a larger plan unnecessarily. These are just an example of the developments we have made for our offering and the innovations we will continue to make going forward into 2023.
