1.1.1 Difference between shared and dedicated resources

Shared resources

The shared resources option is recommended for small projects that can be managed with a single database and a single user, giving you freedom to manage how much storage you need. You can increase storage space as you wish.

Dedicated resources

The dedicated resources option is ideal for production environments that need guaranteed resources. You can increase computational resources (vCPU and RAM) and storage space as you wish.
 
With Cloud DBaaS it is NOT possible to downgrade the resources configured during setup.

The table below shows the differences between shared and dedicated resources.
