Database Scaling

Databases can be resized using the aptible db:restart command, or via the Dashboard.

Database scaling is performed with minimal downtime (usually less than 1 minute).

RAM Scaling

Database Containers can be resized at any time.


When you resize up, scaling may take a while to complete if Enclave needs to provision additional capacity (i.e. additional EC2 instances). Overall, the process can take up to an hour.

However, Database downtime will always be minimized: Enclave waits until new capacity is available before shutting down your database, so downtime will remain on the order of 1 minute, regardless of how long it takes to provisionin new capacity.

Disk Scaling

Database Disks can be resized at most once a day, and can only be resized up (i.e. you cannot shrink your Database Disk).
