Hi, my app uses a Digital Ocean managed postgres cluster on a basic plan with 30 gb data. Every month I need to replace around 15-17 gb of data by uploading this month’s data. I need to keep last month’s data around before I confirm everything is working with the new month’s data. As a result, I temporarily need more than 30 gb worth of disk space on the cluster. I’m wondering the best way to solve this problem without having to pay for the next tier with 60gb of data. I’m thinking I’d have to resize the cluster, upload the data, run tests, delete last month’s data, and downsize the cluster. The resizing seems kind of like a hassle and I’m not sure if it would create downtime for the database. Hoping someone may have some advice on this. Thanks in advance!
