Resize an Instance
You can extend the storage, RAM, and CPU count of an instance to a desired new size based on the required output. Customize the memory, CPU sharing mode (shared CPU/dedicated CPU), and storage configurations of a compute instance as per your requirement.
Follow the steps to resize an instance:
- Sign in to your IDrive® Compute account.
- Click Actions against the instance you want to resize and select Resize.
- Choose a suitable plan.
- Click Resize.
Alternatively, you can click on the instance and select Resize from the LHS menu to perform this operation.
Charges for Resizing an Instance
When you initiate a resize operation, you will be charged as per the current plan until the resize happens. Once the resize operation is completed, you will be charged as per the newly subscribed plan.
Yearly Prepaid Plans
Let's assume you have created an instance at $6/year and after 6 months of usage decided to resize it to a higher plan of $12/year. In that case, the usage charge for the instance will be $3 ($6*6/12) till the 1st of July and for the remaining 6 months of your billing cycle, you will be billed $6 ($12*6/12).
Monthly Postpaid Plans
Let's assume you have subscribed to a $5/month plan ($0.0074/hour) and used the instance for 500 hours, then resized it to a $40/month plan ($0.0595/hour) and used it for 200 hours. In that case, the instance will be billed $3.7 for 500 hours and $11.9 for the next 200 hours.
