Hey friend,

Interesting question! Thank you for asking it. I could see the appeal to this. Right now this is not an option. I’m not sure how reasonable it would be to make it an option, but that is worth the thought experiment.

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.

PLEASE ADD VOLUMES TO MANAGED DATABASES.

Disappointed to find this answer to my question…

Hi, Any Update on this ? can we increase the disk space size for managed databases other than resizing them ? thanks
