Free database has followings restrictions:
- Max 5000 requests per day
- Max 20 concurrent connections
- Max 256 MB data size
If you think your database is close to reaching any of these limits, we recommend you to upgrade to Standard database which:
- No limit on request per day
- Data size up to 10 GB
- 1000 concurrent connections supported.
To upgrade your database, you need to have a payment method. You can add a payment method as described here. If you already have payment method then upgrading is quite easy. In your database screen, you will see an
Upgrade to Standard button as below:
When you click on that, Lambda Store restarts your database and your new database starts as a Standard database.
Important: During the upgrade process, you will not lose any data but your database will experience a downtime about 1-2 seconds. Your existing clients will be disconnected. So it is recommended to upgrade your database when there is the least activity.
