Vapor’s Toolbox CLI makes it easy to spin up a free database.

We are excited to announce beta availability for our new database system. The system has been rebuilt from scratch with a ton of new features.

You can now:

  • Spin up multiple databases per application,
  • Login to your databases from the terminal or your favorite client,
  • Restart, shutdown, and resize your database servers.

Most importantly, there is now a free tier! This means you can deploy a fully functioning Vapor application with database to Vapor Cloud for free.

To get started, download the latest Vapor Toolbox (3.1.2) and apply for the beta by running

vapor cloud db beta

For more insight into the system, check out our documentation here: https://docs.vapor.cloud/database/beta/database-general/

The new system of cause supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB
