Services marked "beta" within the UI are newly-released service types that are still undergoing changes to features and underlying infrastructure. Compose beta services typically remain in beta phase for several months while undergoing testing and performance tuning. We remove the beta flag when services are no longer subject to major feature additions or removals.
While we make every attempt to assure the stability of services still in beta, users should be aware that until the beta label is removed, some features may be incomplete, missing, or may malfunction. As a result, we encourage beta participants to keep a local copy of data and to weigh the risks involved with utilizing beta-level products within production environments.
Alpha launches are exploratory projects by Compose and should only be used for testing technology. We are prototyping the technology internally, and would like to give you the opportunity to prototype as well.
