IBM Cloud Foundry Public is making updates to the service’s default Standard plan Free Tier levels.

This information is also available in Japanese.

These updates will either eliminate or reduce the 375 GBH/month Free Tier that is available today for running IBM Cloud Foundry applications. 

After February 1, 2021, the following plan changes will be made

The 375 GBH/month Free Tier will be eliminated for the following IBM-supported runtimes:

  • Liberty for Java
  • SDK for Node.js
  • ASP.NET Core
  • Runtime for Swift 

The 375 GBH/month Free Tier will be halved to 186 GBH/month for all Community runtimes, including the following:

  • Go
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Tomcat

This means that the amount you are paying for IBM Cloud Foundry runtime usage will change and potentially increase. The measured price of the service is staying the same at $0.07/GB-Hr.

These changes do not affect the IBM Cloud Foundry free usage that is available today with an IBM Cloud Lite Account.
