Lower pricing options on DocumentDB


Hey everyone, I was wondering if there are any plans on AWS's side on providing cheaper options for DocumentDB? RDS provides options with micro, small and medium EC2 instances, but DocumentDB only supports large and xlarge instances.

For the use case of the project I'm in, the available options are completely overkill, especially for our development environments. This is the only reason currently holding us back from using Mongo, as our client does not want us to host our clusters anywhere outside AWS.

We absolutely want to provide our customers with a lower price options and thank you for providing the feedback.

In the meanwhile, there are ways to cut costs for dev/test environments with start/stop and single instance clusters: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/documentdb/latest/developerguide/best_practices.html#best_practices-cost_optimization
