There are a lot of providers that offer free VMs, storage, etc., but not many that offer free, managed Postgres hosting.

Free Tiers

Name Compute Memory Storage Connections Automatic Backups 3 vCPU 4 GB 3 GB 1000 w/ pooler, 100 w/o
supabase 2 vCPU 1 GB 500 MB 50 w/ pooler, 10 w/o

For automated backups, you could always setup your own on of the numerous free tier VM offerings.


Some providers advertise free tiers, but they’re time limited so really they’re free trials.

  • Render: advertises free tier Postgres, but it expires after 90 days.

  • AWS RDS: advertises a generous free tier offering but it expires after 1 year.
