🚀 Go beyond the 1 GiB Repl limit with Expandable Storage

Hi Replit Builders,

We’re excited to announce Replit’s new storage infrastructure: Expandable Storage. With Expandable Storage, you can now go far beyond the previous 1 GiB per Repl storage limit to build bigger and better projects. Our Hacker and Pro plans come with higher account storage limits. Here’s the breakdown for all plans:

  • Free user: 10 GiB
  • Hacker users: 20 GiB
  • Pro users: 50 GiB

Expandable Storage gives you the flexibility you need. You can choose to create multiple large Repls or dozens of smaller ones. Either way, it’s up to you, not an arbitrary per-Repl limit. If your current plan limits are too low, you can also purchase additional storage separate from your plan up to 1 TiB.

To learn more about Expandable Storage, check out our announcement blog post. If you’re interested in purchasing a Hacker or Pro plan to increase your storage, check out our pricing page.

Thanks,
The Replit Team

So does this mean that I can now create as many Repls as I want with as much data, but the hard account limit (free, hacker, pro limit) still applies?

That is correct


Will there be an option to buy a drive and you have it forever?

I would assume not, given that in your account you can purchase more storage, which you pay for monthly (at 15 cycles/ $0.15 USD per GiB per month).

I was asking if it would be available in the future

Yeah, see like, from a business perspective, a one-time disk purchase wouldn’t really make sense. The user owns the disk, but they business has to store it and maintain it, which would cost them, so repeat payments would make the most sense. If you were going to make a one-time purchase disk, you’d have to blow up the price to cater for future costs, or you’d have to be making enough of a profit in other ways, consistently, for it to be reasonable. I think, given that it’s likely to lead to a loss, Replit isn’t likely to add a feature like this in the future (unless I’ve completely misunderstood what you meant).

if you don’t want to pay a recurring fee, stay away from PaaS and SaaS services, which is what Adobe is using now to get better control of their products.

It seems this change / update is causing many users to be unable to use replit.

Maybe it’s related to some UI change due to the storage update (nothing has changed about the limits yet), but an iOS user using an account with storage available is also experiencing it
