Does the droplet limit include other products such as managed databases and load balancers?

Quick question to anybody that knows: Is the droplet limit strictly for droplets, or for droplet-based products such as managed databases and load balancers as well?

Accepted Answer

The droplet limit is only for the droplets.

I know because I ran into the loadbalancer limit independently and also the managed database limit independently.

Upon requesting, the crew will react within a day or so. One of my requests even got picked up within 2 hours so you don’t have to wait long.

Hi there,

Yes, there are different limits that can be increased depending on your needs.

For example, for the Managed Databases, by default, you are limited to 10 clusters per account or team. If you reach this limit but need to create more database clusters, you can submit a request for a higher limit by clicking “Request Increase” on the window that shows when you attempt to create another cluster.

For more information you can check out the documentation here:

Hope that this helps!
