I have theoretical question about something that doesn’t makes any sense to me
Per documentation and blog posts, we know that after beta, we will have following limits:
Up to 20 Namespaces per account Up to 1 billion keys per Namespace Keys of up to 2 kB Values of up to 64 kB
So, theoretical maximum allowed size for per account is:
(2+64) * 1,000,000,000 * 20 / 1024 / 1024 = 1,258,850 GB
It will cost $629,425 monthly and someone might think that it’s expensive for ~1.2 PB, but in reality it’s crazy cheap and this is what doesn’t makes sense to me…
We know that after adding/updating key, it’s replicated in every Cloudfare datacenter (currently 154!!!) in less than 30 seconds. We have to pay $0.5/m per GB and this might sounds expensive until you realize that if you count replicas, you actually pay $0.5 per 154 GB which makes actual price of per GB ~$0.003 and this is insane… It’s too good to be true and doesn’t makes sense with current storage pricing
My question is that if someone actually reach this limits, will Cloudflare allow this?
~184 PB (including replicas) per account for $629K per month?
I have an idea which depends on heavy KV store usage, I don’t think it will ever reach 1.2 PB in size but I want to know if there will be any bottleneck in advance
