How to get more storage space after upgrading to 8x s1 pod?

Hello. I am quickly filling up my 8x s1 pod. How can I expand my data capacity further? The docs talk about making duplicate pods, but that is not what I want to do. I will likely need 3 to 5 more 8x pods to store all my data.

Hi @tylersuard. If you need more space than a single s1.x8 pod can provide, we recommend converting to two or more s1.x4 pods. It’s a two-step process:

  1. Create a collection from an index
  2. Create an index from a collection

When you create the new index, keep in mind you’ll want room to upgrade in place. So starting with x2 or x4 pods is the way to go. Four s1.x2 pods will give you the same space as your current single pod, and the cost is the same as well. Three s1.x4 pods will give you about 50% more space but less room to grow later before having to create a new index again. But there’s not a right or wrong approach, it depends entirely on your use case.
