This document explains how to reconfigure database resources using the PlanetScaleDB console.
Once you have a PlanetScaleDB database, you can reallocate resources for the database from the PlanetScaleDB console. This includes CPU, storage, memory, database instances, and analytics instances.
To reconfigure a database, complete the following steps:
When you create a new cluster, this page opens automatically. Otherwise, log in to the PlanetScale console.

Under Databases, click the name of the database you wish to reconfigure.
Under Configuration, click the Reconfigure button.
In the Reconfigure Database pane, modify the resource allocation for the database. You can reallocate the following resources:
The Cost per instance calculator shows the hourly cost for the new configuration.
Storage reallocation takes a few seconds. CPU and RAM reallocation may take several hours.
PlanetScaleDB does not currently support decreasing the storage allocation for a database.
A message appears to confirm that the reconfiguration is successful.
