We’re committed to helping developers discover, explore, and build with vector databases. Over the past two years we’ve invested heavily into running our Starter (free) plan, and we’re proud that it’s become an integral part to the AI journey for tens of thousands of developers.
Over the past few weeks, the level of excitement around Pinecone has been astounding. There are now thousands of people signing up for our free plan every day, and growing fast. As a managed infrastructure provider, keeping a service running smoothly at enormous scales is exactly the kind of challenge we love to work on.
thanks for free plan, helps prototyping, exploring the product and see some early value. also, played around with several other options in the space of vector databases. this had the least entry barrier / learning curve. kudos on the progress. happy to help in any way possible.
I have to concur with the last few posts - I’m really excited to get started, but I’m in no way able to justify the expense for a personal experiment. I think you guys probably have plenty of subscribers at this point, but you would surely garner many more with a more frugal-friendly plan.
