There are four main parameters you can change for each timescale service:

  • Enable termination protection: When Termination Protection is enabled, the service cannot be terminated or powered down from the UI, REST API or CLI. You must disable Termination Protection to terminate or power down.
  • Upgrade PostgreSQL version: If using an older version, you can upgrade to a newer version.
  • Change service plan: This allows you to change the configuration (CPU, Memory and Storage) of your database.
  • Change cloud service provider: You can migrate your service to a different cloud provider (GCP, Azure, or AWS) or a different region. The migration happens in the background and does not affect your service until the service has been rebuilt at the new cloud & region. After this, the DNS name the service uses is pointed to the new region which may cause a short interruption in service while the DNS changes are propagated.

1.1 Changing your service plan or cloud provider

Select either the "Upgrade Plan" or "Migrate Cloud" option to surface a workflow which will guide you through updating your existing instance. This workflow is the same one you went through when creating a new service.
