What types of database can I create in FeatureBase Cloud?

FeatureBase Cloud has the concept of “shapes” which are based on real-world implementations of FeatureBase and define:

  • How much memory is available
  • how much disk space is available
  • how many Virtual Central Processing Units (vCPUs) are available to perform ingestion and queries

NOTE: Production shapes are not available on trial accounts.

Before you begin

Estimating your requirements

NOTE: Contact FeatureBase support for help estimating your data requirements.

You can duplicate your existing RDBMS data structures within FeatureBase.

But to get the best results, users should perform a data modeling process to:

  • determine the specific data they wish to query
  • take advantage of FeatureBase-specific data types and constraints
  • run queries on the data to test if the structure meets expectations

By performing Data Modeling, customers may further reduce their raw data footprint and flatten out tables in order to make queries even faster.

Trial account and Development shapes

Two database shapes are available on all accounts. These can be used for data modeling, development and testing.

Shape Memory (GB) Volume (GB) Compute (vCPU)
8GB-Development 8 32 2
64GB-Development 64 64 16

Production shapes

Production shapes are available on paid accounts. These have:

  • overprovisioned disk space and memory to ensure best performance
  • data replication should a node go down.
Shape Memory (GB) Volume (GB) Compute (vCPU)
32GB prod 32 100 12
64GB prod 64 300 24
128GB prod 128 500 48
256GB prod 256 1200 96
512GB prod 512 2500 192
1024GB prod 1024 5000 320
2048GB prod 2048 10000 576
