Self Host Alternatives


I have a scheduled GVC call with Google billing department to discuss resizing the GKE nodes and postreSQL deployment.

The monthly GCP service cost is over $300 per month.

Can you recommend an alternative low-cost N8N configuration to Host n8n on Google Cloud?


It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

What about n8n cloud? :slight_smile:
Depends on your usecase of course but it is an attractive option in my opinion.

Sadly no custom nodes yet, but if you are not using those that ain’t a problem of course.

It all depends on what you are doing and what you actually have set up. $300 could be a lot but if you have multiple workers running and a database then it isn’t so bad unless you don’t actually need that in which case you could just use a $30 vps
