Quickly & Easily Deploy your Database with Compose.
Product screenshot of Compose is a database-as-a-service company that provides a fully-managed platform for deploying, hosting, and scaling databases. started working with MongoDB, but since then has expanded to offer managed services for Elasticsearch and RethinkDB. The company says it implements databases instantly with backups, tracking, performance tuning, and a whole host of management tools. was officially known as MongoHQ and headquartered in San Mateo, California, with offices in Birmingham, Alabama. The price of MongoDB service starts at $ 18 per GB per month, RethinkDB ranging from $ 21 a month and ElasticSearch starting at $ 54 per month for the first 2GB and $18 for each GB after that.

How Does Compose Work?

According to their website, there are several talented and visionary developers and companies that should not waste their time on system administration work. As an alternative, they recommend them to have all the necessary data creation, and management needs so that users can focus on why they started their business first. It is stated by that a database can be easily managed by them as their data needs increase, giving companies the opportunity to spend more time modeling data without worrying about their ability.

They also allow you to run your databases on "purpose designed hardware SSDs at enterprise level", which implies that significant data will get an added boost. In addition, they provide their clients with three essential tasks in the production database: backup, replication and full monitoring. Users who are unsure whether this service is right for them should talk to a company representative and consider participating in a 30-day free trial.

Compose Pricing

There are currently seven different accounts that members can subscribe to. Each account varies depending on the type of storage it provides to clients, the number of databases it covers, backup management mode, and more. The cost of each account is largely based on the size of the database you need to manage, and these monthly charges are clearly explained on their website. Regardless of which account you think will work best for you, all users will be invited to a 30-day free trial of their services to see how they work for you and will truly meet all of your needs.

Compose Refund Policy

As mentioned above, all users are invited to participate in a free trial of 30 days, and they will not apply for payment until they complete this trial. If you are not satisfied with the services during the first 30 days, you can cancel membership without paying a dime. If you choose to continue with membership and determine that you no longer need their services, you can cancel when you want without a penalty. However, users who have used the trial period and continue membership will probably not be eligible for a refund of their fees.


At present, many technologies and business websites and blogs are thrilled with the type of service offered by this company and the various database administration options they offer to their customers. Since this company offers its customers a free trial of their services for 30 days, users should feel comfortable doing this service before choosing to be committed.

In addition, the prices for compose are justified. Probably armed with a business plan, they made their calculations from every corner, as far as they equalize or surpass the competition in their total value analysis. (Of course, this is not just a question of price.) If you have not done some research, you will not go far. However, if they overestimate their product (or have not shown additional value), they risk being underestimated and not achieving their sales plan so that revenue will not reach the plan. Which would not be good. Basically, we should accept that they think they are targeting the right potential buyers with the right product at the right price.

In addition to the business plan itself, you have got a business strategy for implementing this plan; this will be a leading hand, with the tactics that support it. The often-used tactic is that the company increases the price to gain market share. How long it can be supported, another completely different question. (And you may have to guess who it is, because it will seldom decide to spread the facts). Nevertheless, to get to the point, the appraisal of the perceived comparative value depends entirely on you.

What is Compose by IBM?

Compose is fully managed database services/copies of IBM. You can as well imagine it as a database as a service platform.

What exactly makes a Compose Deployment exceptional?

Compose actually lets developers focus on what works best for them. With other databases as service providers, developers spend too much time trying to reduce their marketing position to understand the required level of service. Regardless of the size of the database, their implementation comes with a consistent set of features. Therefore, their automatic scaling implementation avoids assumptions about the capacity and matrix of feature mapping. After connecting an application to a database, you can spend your time building your product.

What are some of the basic deployment features?

Automatic scales of a server set that records RAM, processor, as well as I/O as your data increases. Database storage is performed in extremely fast SSDs (Solid State Drives). Guaranteed database resources and free backups, regardless of the size of your database.

How much does Compose cost?

All their implementations begin with a basic configuration that usually supports 1 GB of data storage. Then there is an increase in prices for each additional gigabyte for data storage. RAM, CPU as well as I/O are incremented as an additional storage space. Therefore, the prices of Compose are easy to understand and anticipate how the usage increases.

How do you make Compose databases reliable?

Each implementation is designed with high-availability (HA) as a basic requirement. With every plan, you get a completely redundant hardware architecture in your database. Each type of database implements the high-availability according to the specification of the best practices.
