Is there a limit on number of connections with the Astra DB free tier?

I started evaluating AstraDB with free tier account , when I deploy the my SpringBoot application ( Uses datastax driver to create session using secure bundle) in PCF with multiple instances (4 instances), I see AstraDB connection fails for 1-2 instances ( java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to connect to cloud metadata service. Please make sure your cluster is not parked or terminated)

When I restrict the instances 2, it works. Is there any limit on number of connection in free tier?

The free tier for Astra DB only has enough resources for you to be able to try it out. It is not provisioned for production usage for obvious reasons.

If you'd like to do a production proof-of-concept, we can certainly accomodate it. Just reach out to us using the live chat function on the Astra site. Cheers!
