Scale up storage consideration

When creating a database deployment on Oracle Database Cloud Service, you choose the amount of usable data storage you want for your database. You can create a database of up to 1200 GB with backups to both cloud and local storage or up to 2048 GB (2 TB) with backups to cloud storage only or no backups

By adding more storage, you can create much larger databases:

  • In Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic, which supports 5 scale-up operations, you can create a database of up to 4.7 TB with backups to both cloud and local storage or up to 10 TB (7.7 TB in Oracle RAC deployments) with backups to cloud storage only or no backups.
  • In Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, which supports 28 scale-up operations, you can create a database of up to 19 TB with backups to both cloud and local storage or up to 48 TB with backups to cloud storage only or no backups. However, if you need databases of such large sizes, you should consider using Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service instead of Oracle Database Cloud Service.

You may use Scale Up/Down option to increase your storage volume

Please provide how much additional storage you need and select option “Create New Storage Volume”
