Announcing Dynamic Disk Sizing

You can now book additional storage in your Aiven services without needing to switch plans in PostgreSQL, MySQL and Apache Kafka plans as a self-service. Read to find out more.

08 December 2021

Aiven customers can now freely adjust the disk space allocation for Aiven for PostgreSQL, Aiven for MySQL and Aiven for Apache Kafka plans as a self-service. This means you can now book additional storage without needing to switch plans.

With Dynamic Disk Sizing, customers can adjust the amount of disk space they use directly in the Aiven console.

This capability is available for the PostgreSQL, MySQL and Apache Kafka services in AWS, GCP and Azure environments.

When to use Dynamic Disk Sizing?

Aiven offers a set of plans with fixed storage allocations. Sometimes, though, you may need more storage without needing to scale up everything else as well. With this new feature, you can now create a more personalized plan, adjusting the disk space based on your actual needs.

When you select a plan as usual, you now have the option of allocating additional storage up to 3 times the amount defined in the plan.

You can add storage in steps of 10 GB until you reach the maximum capacity. For each 10 GB that you add, you can immediately see the final price directly in the Aiven Console.

The price of the additional storage also covers the additional backup storage needed to handle the increased disk size.

Getting started with Dynamic Disk Sizing in Aiven

Dynamic Disk Sizing can be implemented directly in the Aiven Console. Find the service you want to adjust, and on the Overview tab, click Add Storage. Adding storage
