Upgrading Postgres Plan

Hi (-:

Today we are using Heroku Postgres and with a simple command, we can upgrade our DB to a bigger plan (more CPU and RAM). This takes a couple of hours, and seconds of downtime for the switch itself.

What is the equivalent process in Render?

Hi Yaron,

Your database can be upgraded at any time via the Dashboard UI or via your render.yaml if you are managing your database via Blueprints. We have several out of the box plans listed here which you can choose from. Making the actual upgrade will result in a few minutes of downtime for your database. We do also have custom database plans available if your resource needs exceed those on our available plans - for more information on this, please reach out to us at support@render.com.
