Understanding account quotas

Published 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 Availability Zone (AZ).

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.

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.

Maximum number of projects in an Organization2525

SSH keys

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

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.

Kubernetes

Kubernetes Kapsule provides a managed environment for you to create, configure and run a cluster of pre-configured machines for containerized applications.

Kubernetes Kosmos is the first-of-its-kind managed Multi-Cloud Kubernetes Engine. It allows the connection of Instances and servers from any Cloud provider to a single managed Control-Plane hosted by Scaleway.

Container Registry

Scaleway Container Registry is a fully-managed mutualized Container Registry, designed to facilitate the storage, management and deployment of container images. The service simplifies the development-to-production workflow, as there is no need to operate your own Container Registry or to worry about the underlying infrastructure.

Serverless Containers

Serverless Containers allow you to deploy your containerized applications in a managed infrastructure. Scaleway ensures the deployment, the availability and scalability of all your projects.

Resources quotas

RAM quotas

The maximum RAM quota is obtained by multiplying the maximum scale factor of your container by the selected RAM quantity. For example, if you choose to create a container with 512 MB of memory and a maximum scale of 20, you will have 10 GB RAM.

Serverless Functions

Serverless Functions allow you to deploy your Functions on a managed infrastructure. Benefit from a constant availability, everywhere.

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 120GB.
