AuraDB Free to AuraDB Professional
new
Hello there,
As your AuraDB Free graph grows, you may find yourself needing more nodes and relationships.
Getting your graph from an AuraDB Free database and into a new AuraDB Professional paid database where there are no limits on the number of nodes and relationships, can be achieved in the following way.
First go to the "SNAPSHOTS" tab for your AuraDB Free database, and take an on-demand snapshot.

Once the snapshot is available, within the options for that snapshot select "+ Create database from snapshot".

This will take you through a flow to create a new paid AuraDB Professional database, populated with the graph from your AuraDB Free database Snapshot, asking for payment details should you not already have entered them.
AuraDB Professional databases are charged to the payment details you provide for every hour they are up and running in a month, in arrears, on the first day of every month.
Note "Take Snapshot" is also the way you can get your data out of an AuraDB Free database, by selecting the "Export" option for your Snapshot.

Clone from an existing AuraDB Professional instance!
new
Hello there, we have some great news!
You can now clone from one AuraDB Professional database to a new AuraDB Professional database.
  • You can only clone to a new latest Neo4j 4 AuraDB database.
  • You can clone from a Neo4j 3 to a Neo4j 4 new database, smoothing out your migration path.
  • You can clone to a new database in a different global region.
  • Your destination database must be the same size or bigger than your source database.
I'll personally be in touch with those running a Neo4j 3 instance as we look to deprecate Neo4j 3 from the platform in the coming months.
If you are interested in the ability to clone from one database to an existing (not new) database, please up vote : https://neo4j-aura.canny.io/feature-requests/p/clone-one-instance-to-an-existing-instance
To get to the clone button currently, head to the "Settings" for your Database and click "Clone".

Infrastructure maintenance to available deployment regions.
improved
Maintenance Notice
Hello there,
we are going to be carrying out some pro-active maintenance work to meet the growing demand in our Europe deployment regions.
Over the coming days, we will remove the ability to create new databases in the "Belgium (europe-west1)" region and enable the ability to create new databases in the "Frankfurt (europe-west3)" region.
Within weeks we will restore the ability to create new databases in the "Belgium (europe-west1)" alongside the "Frankfurt (europe-west3)" region.
Databases already created in the "Belgium (europe-west1)" region will continue to function as normal during this process, with no reduction in performance or capabilities, i.e. the ability to resize or take on-demand snapshots.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at aura-feedback@neo4j.com.
Kind Regards
Aura Team
On-Demand Snapshots available!
new
Hello folks,
in response to popular demand we have completed the work to allow users to create an on-demand or point in time snapshot or backup of their database.
To use this functionality, please head to the "SNAPSHOTS" tab for any running database and click on the "Take snapshot" button as indicated below.
We look forward to hearing feedback on how this has simplified some of the tasks in your development workflows.
