As part of our offer for AuraDB Free, you can create and use an AuraDB Instance and have it running at no cost.
If a running AuraDB Instance receives no activity (updates, changes or write queries), after a period of 72 hours of inactivity, we will automatically pause it.
Your data is preserved and safe. However, while in the paused state, it is just not available online. If the database remains paused for 30 days, it will be deleted by the system.
To resume your AuraDB Instance, simply log in to the Aura console and press Resume.
