Scale a project

In Imply Polaris, the size of a project is determined by the following parameters:

  • vCPU: number of virtual processors
  • Memory: amount of memory
  • Storage: maximum usable storage space

Polaris lets you change the size of your projects for optimal cost and performance.


Users with the AdministerScaling permission assigned to their profile can scale projects in Polaris. For information on permissions, see Permissions reference.

Change project size

You can change the size of your project from the Change project size dialog in the Polaris UI. The dialog shows the summary of your current data usage and available project sizes.

To display the Change project size dialog:

  1. Expand the project selector drop-down in the left sidebar.
  2. Click the ellipsis menu next to the name of the project.
  3. Click Change size.

To scale a project, select the next size up or down from the list of available options. When scaling down, if the size of your data exceeds the space available, you must reduce the amount of data to fit within the selected storage size. If you do not see the project size that meets your needs, contact Polaris customer support.
