Yes and they used that opportunity to raise prices from 18 USD to 31 USD, a hefty 72% price increase. I don’t know about your salary but mine unfortunately hasn’t increased at all, for sure not 72%.
That’s a shame, probably the downside when you’re now an IBM company who apparently has to lay off more than 100k of it’s employees (as reported), so you squeeze every dollar out of your investments that you can get (even if you lose customer in the process).
What isn’t clear from their article if the price change is for their current customer (like me) as well. Price changes are always an opportunity to cancel the existing contract.
For 31 USD per month it becomes more and more attractive to look for alternatives, even pay someone to setup MongoDB on a dedicated server. Even more so when you consider the huge saving in disk space when enabling WT (which would cost 133 USD per month to start with).
Looks like Compose.io is testing how lazy their customer are in changing to another provider.
So, can someone recommend alternatives? Anyone willing to help setup a dedicated server (for a fee obviously)?
