Increase maximum storage size for M60 servers
Currently the maximum storage size allowed for an M60 tier is 4TB. Our cluster is approaching this size, and we're facing having to shard our data, which we would really prefer not to do.
I understand that the maximum sizes are selected for performance reasons, but not every cluster is the same - ours is doing just fine and not struggling at all at this data size, and we would like to be able to continue to grow over time.
Hi Rusty - Thanks for the feedback. I work in the product team at MongoDB. I understand that our support team has talked with you about the idea of using Online Archive. I am interested in learning more why it may be unsuitable for you (you can email me at email@example.com).
We will consider your request for increasing the 4TB limit, but I can't guarantee a quick solution. In the meantime, I am happy to talk to you more about sharding and some other features coming down the pipe, which may help you if you email me.
