> if you aren’t sending traffic, the database – and your query costs – scales down to zero. It takes only a fraction of a second to serve your first query after an idle period.

If this is true, it will being distributed SQL to small applications, so that they can scale quote far in case they become popular. Till now whenever I looked at pricing of managed CockroachDB or Yugabyte, even the smallest cluster of 3 servers was beyond $500 per month!

Serverless with RDBMS...no small feat
