You can enable auto scaling for your database. When your database reaches the quotas of your current plan, it will automatically be upgraded to a higher plan without requiring your confirmation. These upgrades are performed seamlessly, without causing any downtime. Upon completion of the upgrade, you will receive an informative email notification.

Upgrades are triggered when one of the below quotas is exceeded multiple times in a predefined period.

  • Max Commands Per Second
  • Max Concurrent Connections
  • Max Data Size
  • Max Daily Bandwidth
  • Max Memory Storage
  • Max Monthly Usage Cap

You can enable auto scale while creating your database or from the database details page for an existing database.

Upstash does not automatically scale down your databases. If you wish to move your database to a lower plan, please contact us at for assistance.
