Directus Community Cloud is Completely Free, with No Quota Limits on Usage (Seriously!)

By Directus Staff on May 11, 2022

March 2023 Update: free isn't always so free. We've paused the creation of new Community Cloud projects.

You read that right! We’ve announced general availability for our new Community Cloud, and it’s completely free – forever – with no quota limits on usage.

Are we crazy? No – we’re grateful! As you know, Directus is dedicated to our open-source community, and offering a cloud version of our core platform for free enables more of our community members to benefit from all it has to offer. It’s our way of giving back.

We recently re-built Directus 9 from the ground up entirely in Javascript using Vue and Node. Now, thanks to our open-source spirit and our amazing team of developers, anyone can start building amazing apps and digital experiences with Directus in the Community Cloud. Create proofs-of-concept or hobby projects from scratch or use our pre-built templates, for free, and take advantage of cloud-exclusive features.

But wait, there’s more …

No Quota Limitations

With Directus Community Cloud, you won’t be limited by anything from your imagination. Enjoy unlimited users, access roles, collections, items, locales, API requests and API bandwidth – it’s all included.

Community Cloud has your infrastructure covered too, including a dedicated server and SQL database, asset storage, a global CDN, 24/7 system monitoring, and encryption in transit and at rest.

Need to Scale? No Problem!

When you’re ready to move to a production-ready tier, upgrading to our pay-as-you-go Standard Cloud is a simple, seamless process. For a complete list of Community Cloud and Standard cloud features, visit our pricing page.
