Development services are designed for smaller workloads and starter projects. They are the lowest-cost option in ClickHouse Cloud. Though at a lower price than our other service types,
Development services are still designed for high reliability and are replicated across two availability zones.
Development services do not support autoscaling.
Development services are best for internal projects and prototypes, and for developers just trying out ClickHouse.
Production services are designed for customer-facing applications and medium-sized workloads. They offer advanced features compared to
Development services, including automatic scaling, AWS Private Link support, and S3 role-based access.
Production services automatically scale to handle workload and traffic variability.
Production services are the most common service type for most startup and enterprise use cases.
Dedicated services are designed for enterprise workloads with strict isolation and latency requirements. They have highly customizable compute and memory configurations; these services are tailored exactly to your application’s needs.
Dedicated services are best for enterprises with workloads that support high-traffic customer-facing applications or that serve mission-critical internal usage.
