Elastic Disk


To get access to this feature, please contact [email protected].


Elastic Disk is the option of automatic extension of attached disk space that will allow task execution to continue if the original disk capacity becomes insufficient.

If Elastic Disk is enabled, the CGC will automatically extend attached disk space by 50% once 80% load has been reached on the existing disk space. The execution of your tools on the instance will continue without any interruption while the changes take effect. The extension can happen 4 times at maximum or to a maximum disk size.

Disk extension will be added to the sum of the Attached Disk item in your final task price.
