Fast resize availability change

October 31, 2014 2.4k views

Is the fast resize availabilty something which can change in a datacenter in relation to the actual resources or a limit set in place by someone from the staff?

Eg. If I have 2 droplets in the London datacenter and I destroy one can I resize the other droplet in order to upgrade my plan?

I’m asking this because I’d like to upgrade my plan on a London droplet (where fast resize is not available) and I care about downtime (so I’d prefer skipping the snapshot method).
I’m considering waiting a few days to see if it becomes available again but I’m not sure if it’s pointless

The availability of the fast resize option depends on the amount of space available on the host server. There is no guarantee that your two droplets are on the same hypervisor even though they are both in the London datacenter. It’s possible that droplets on the server will be destroyed and room will become available, but that is hard to predict.

Thank you for your quick reply!
