We're pleased to let you know that you can now pause any AuraDB Professional instances when you are not actively using them.
Paused instances will be charged at 20% of the running cost.
We'll auto resume instances that have been paused for 30 days, to ensure we update them to the latest and greatest Neo4j database version.
At which point you'll be charged the running cost, but you can pause them again if you want.
You'll find the pause button on the main database card.
This feature facilitates cost management, you can pause database instances you only need for demos, development or that you only need running during working hours.
As always, we're keen to hear your feedback, so let us know how you get on.
