Data and CPU Quotas

    We enforce quotas on the resource usage in the free tier for a number of reasons. For instance, quotas protect users from sudden unforeseen spikes and even outages caused by either malicious usage or just user error. Since we allow for running arbitrary code in essentially shared environment, we must be careful and prevent users from grabbing all processor or disk resources. The restrictions are very permissive and we see just a tiny fraction of our users who actually hit the limits.
