re: Fission API in ipfs-deploy VIEW POST


Hey @bmann , glad you found ipfs-deploy useful :) I was just answering a question in the comments for the guide I wrote and saw your message from before about the "even free-er" unauthenticated/rate-limited option to help people get that first happy experience. Is this something you all are still considering? Cheers!


Hi Helder! Not something we’re focusing on right now as we work on the Fission CLI tool. You can register right on the command line so the experience is quite smooth. Try it out and let me know what you think.

We haven’t settled on what the lowest tier is. Max 100MB individual file size and a couple of GBs of pinned files maybe? Any thoughts?


Hey Boris! Yeah I saw the cli signup a little afterwards. It's really fantastic and should help people get started without much friction. Kudos for that :)

As for the tiers, there is a recent comparison that the folks at Temporal did that might provide a good benchmark for you all:


Yes we saw that. Not really thinking about this in terms of cost per GB, especially when if the same CID is pinned, the file size could be shared across quotas.

We’re thinking large files should be a feature (since it drives bandwidth as well as backup), hence the thought about 100MB limit for a free tier.

First we need to build out some metrics and logging. Stay tuned!
