Resize your Instance

The Crunchy Bridge system supports in-place resizing. In-place resizing promises minimal downtime (only a short connection interruption) and no changes to your connection string to change the size of your cluster.

Resizing is a cluster action available in the main cluster overview screen:

Instance actions

During a cluster resize, you can change the instance size, storage, major version, and enable or disable HA. You will need to change one of these parameters to initiate a resize. Your original and new monthly costs will appear on the right.

Instance resize

If you need to size your cluster’s storage down, open a support ticket and our team will assist you.

Resizing will take place during your next maintenance window. If you need to resize immediately, you should remove your maintenance window before resizing. If you return to the resize page before a resize has been completed, you can cancel it.

Like our HA feature, the Bridge system will bring up a new machine behind the scenes, copy your data, and do a cutover. You should ensure your application is set up to automatically reconnect to the database since there will be a brief service interruption (just a few seconds).
