New Relic Free Tier FAQ

There’s no catch. Every engineer now has instant access to New Relic’s powerful complete observability platform at no cost, forever.

The new perpetual free offering includes access to New Relic with no hidden costs or credit card required, including:

  • 100 GB of free data ingest from any source every month.
  • Unlimited basic users that have the ability to run queries and create and view custom dashboards.
  • One free standard user. This includes full access to every capability within New Relic: APM, infrastructure monitoring, digital experience monitoring, logs, serverless monitoring, and more.

Once an engineer’s usage increases beyond these levels, New Relic makes it easy for customers to upgrade to meet their growing needs.

You can access all of New Relic beyond the free tier limits with a monthly, pay-as-you-go option, or with volume discounts when you commit to an annual usage amount. It’s very similar to how you might already pay for cloud platforms and services. Here’s how it works:

  • All new accounts start with a perpetually free tier. You can add data sources, invite teammates, and use the entire platform.
  • As you exceed the free limits, you’ll be prompted to add your credit card, and you’ll only be charged for what you use above the free limit each month.
  • If you’re looking for volume discounts, more predictability, or are already on an annual subscription with New Relic, you can choose the annual pool of funds option.

Unlike other commit pricing options in the industry, the annual pool of funds approach gives you more flexibility to accommodate seasonal spikes and dips in usage. That flexibility comes from having an annual commitment pool with roll overs between months rather than a monthly commitment amount with a use-it-or-lose-it limitation or monthly overage bills.
