The title is self explanatory. :)

We currently run our database on a droplet with 8GB RAM / 50GB disk + 400GB volume attached to it.

The only thing stopping us from moving to managed db is the lack of volumes on managed db. Our db simply would not fit on managed db droplets or if it we could find such a droplet it would end up being x5 to x10 times more expensive.


Disappointed to find this answer to my question…


I need a 5-15 TB database. On DO(managed database), the maximum configuration is 1.12 TB. At the moment, I just can’t use the managed database in any way.

Please add volumes to managed databases.
