Removal of GraphQL API and edge caching (Redis) (October 1, 2022) These two features have been already deprecated. We are planning to deactivate them completely on November 1st. We recommend use of REST API to replace GraphQL API and Global databases instead of Edge caching.

Removal of strong consistency (Redis) (October 1, 2022) Upstash supported Strong Consistency mode for the single region databases. We decided to deprecate this feature because its effect on latency started to conflict with the performance expectations of Redis use cases. Moreover, we improved the consistency of replication to guarantee Read-Your-Writes consistency. Strong consistency will be disabled on existing databases on November 1st.

Redis pay-as-you-go usage cap (October 1, 2022)

We are increasing the max usage cap to $160 from $120 as of October 1st. This update is needed because of the increasing infrastructure cost due to replicating all databases to multiple instances. After your database exceeds the max usage cost, your database might be rate limited.

Replication is enabled (Sep 29, 2022)

All new and existing paid databases will be replicated to multiple replicas. Replication enables high availability in case of system and infrastructure failures. Starting from October 1st, we will gradually upgrade all databases without downtime. Free databases will stay single replica.

Vercel Integration (February 22, 2021)

Upstash&Vercel integration has been released. Now you are able to integrate Upstash to your project easily. We believe Upstash is the perfect database for your applications thanks to its:

  • Low latency data
  • Per request pricing
  • Durable storage
  • Ease of use

Below are the resources about the integration:
