  • You can have both Always Free and regular tables in the same tenancy.
  • The Always Free NoSQL tables are displayed in the console with an “Always Free” label next to the table name.
  • An Always Free NoSQL table cannot be changed to a regular table or vice versa.

Resource Restrictions for Always Free NoSQL tables

  • You may have a maximum of three Always Free NoSQL tables at any time. If you have three Always Free NoSQL tables , the toggle button to create an Always Free NoSQL table is disabled. If you delete one or more of those tables, then the toggle button will be re-enabled.
  • Read Capacity (Read Units) is 50 and cannot be changed.
  • Write Capacity (Write Units) is 50 and cannot be changed.

Regional Availability

Always Free NoSQL tables are available in a subset of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure data regions. See Data Regions for more details on where Always Free NoSQL tables are supported.

Always Free NoSQL tables - Inactivity and Deletion

If an Always Free NoSQL table has not been used or accessed for 30 days, it moves to an ‘inactive’ state. Always Free NoSQL tables that remain inactive for 90 days are deleted. The inactive state is shown in the console next to the table name. A customer notification is sent to the tenancy administrator when the table initially becomes inactive (after 30 days of inactivity). A reminder is sent again at 75 days of inactivity.

You may make an Always Free NoSQL table active again by performing any get/put/delete operation on any row(s) in the table. DDL operations do not make an inactive table active again.
