Plan size storage limits

ObjectRocket offers several tools to help manage the size and scale of your growth. As your CockroachDB footprint grows, experts are standing by to help explain your options. After your data reaches the storage capacity for that instance, you receive a ticket from the support team with suggestions and options. If you want to size-up your instance to the next plan, you don’t have to do anything. Your invoice is automatically adjusted. Respond to the ticket with any questions.

Note

You can also use the ObjectRocket API to add storage capacity to your CockroachDB instance.

Plan size memory limits

Some applications have certain memory requirements. If this is the case for your workload, you need to select a plan based on that requirement, even if you don’t need that much storage. Be sure to select the flavor and plan type that provides enough storage and RAM for your application.

Note

You can also use the ObjectRocket API to add memory capacity to your CockroachDB instance.

Note

Within the limits of the selected plan, ObjectRocket monitors and adds nodes as necessary to increase your available storage and balance CockroachDB to optimize performance across all nodes.
