Quick Freeze is a free tool for developers to store data temporarily. Here you can make use of this service to store data that you only need to store for a few seconds or even microseconds. It lets you create a small bucket on the cloud, pretty much like a cache, to store data. It calls those bucket “Trays”. Once you add some data to tray, it will be automatically deleted after you read it. Or, there is an option to store for longer, but that is in premium plans.
The free plan of Quick Freeze lets you create 1 tray of 100Kb in size. You can put and fetch data by making simple API calls, and you can implement this data reading and storing functionality in any programming language. On the main website, it provides you a simple dashboard that you can use to track your tray size.
There are 2 modes to store data on this website; quick freeze and deep freeze. What I mentioned earlier is what happens in quick freeze mode. But if you want it to retain data for longer time then you can for deep freeze option. In deep freeze mode it will store your data for up to 7 days.
