You can change the instance size in Settings > your component (under scaling).

At the root of the Settings page you can change your app from Basic to Pro if necessary.

Hope this helps!

  • Got it - thanks - so I choose 10 containers, it’ll auto-scale for heavy traffic with this option ?

    • App Platform does not offer autoscaling (yet, we hope it in the future). Choosing 10 containers will create 10 horizontally scaled instances of your app which will be able to handle heavy traffic.

      By autoscaling I mean, automatically adding and removing instances based on your traffic.
