Understanding Organization quotas

Reviewed on 20 June 2023Published on 10 February 2021

Every Organization has quotas, which are limits on the number of Scaleway resources they can use. Below is a list of quotas available for each resource.

At Scaleway, quotas are applicable per Organization.

Important:

Quotas are assigned according to each account level. They do not accumulate. To increase a specific quota, you must contact our support team.

Note:

If you have already validated your payment method and your identity and want to increase your quota beyond the values shown on this page, contact our support team.

Identity and Access Management

Identity and Access Management (IAM) allows you to share access to the management of your Scaleway resources, in a controlled and secure manner.

Projects

Project is Scaleway's resource management feature. Designed to help you organize your infrastructure and cloud services, the feature allows resources to be isolated and grouped into specific projects.

SSH keys

An SSH Key (Secure Shell Key) allows passwordless connection to an Instance.

SSH keys allowed5050

SMTP

By default, remote email ports (25, 465, 587) are blocked, and cannot be reached from our infrastructure to avoid spam. You need to open the mail ports to send emails. You can enable them from the security group configuration.

Instances

An Instance is a computing unit, either virtual or physical, that provides resources to run your applications on. Currently Scaleway offers the following Instance types: General Purpose, Development, GPU, Stardust and Enterprise.

Important:

Quotas are applied manually for Enterprise (ENT) range Instances to Organizations that have their identity validated. Contact our support team.

Storage

Local and Block Storage options are available with our compute offers.

Note:

Regardless of the quotas displayed below, be aware that:

  • A virtual Instance can bear up to 16 volumes, including the mandatory local volume. Therefore, the maximum number of block volumes that can be attached to an Instance is 15.
  • The maximum size of a block volume is 10 TB.
  • The maximum local storage for a DEV Instance depends on the DEV Instance type. For example, for the DEV1-XL the maximum local storage is 120 GB.
