“[W]e know the current price of Galaxy is out of reach for many members of our community,” Matt DeBergalis, cofounder and chief executive of Meteor Development Group, wrote in a blog post. “Our Team, Business, and Enterprise plans are really for production apps that already need scale, high availability, and high-touch support.
“That being said, we understand that many developers don’t need all of this. So today we’re taking a small but important step towards giving you the Galaxy you deserve, at prices that make sense for all apps.”
The service will cost 3.5 cents per gigabyte per hour, or around $13 per container per month, DeBergalis wrote.
San Francisco, California-based Meteor Development Group announced a $20 million funding round in May.
People interested in using the new Galaxy Developer Edition can now request an invitation for it.
