Add storage space#

With Aiven for Apache Kafka®, Aiven for PostgreSQL®, and Aiven for MySQL services, you can configure additional disk storage on top of what is included in your service plan.

Compared to service plan upgrades, setting additional disk storage is mainly intended for cases where you do not need additional computing power.


This feature is not available for all service plans. For example, Aiven for Apache Kafka® Startup and Aiven for PostgreSQL® Hobbyist service plans do not support adding storage space.

  1. Log in to the Aiven web console and select your service.

  2. On the Overview page, scroll down to Service plan and click Add Storage.

  3. Select Add disk storage and use the slider to select the amount of storage that you want to add, up to a maximum of twice the storage defined in your service plan.

    The cost of the additional storage is shown to the right of the slider.

    • For Aiven for Apache Kafka® services, you can set the amount in increments of 30GB

    • For Aiven for PostgreSQL® and Aiven for MySQL services, you can set the amount in increments of 10GB

  4. Click Save changes.

    This adds the storage to your service, and you can see the change next to Service plan on the Overview page for your service.
