If you need more power for a business-critical site during high-traffic periods, planning for a spike in visitors during a campaign, or need a bit more headroom while investigating performance issues Dedicated Resources gives you full control. Umbraco Cloud is continuously evolving and the latest round of features are based on customer feedback and have been developed to make Cloud an even easier choice for your next Umbraco project. Let’s take a look 👀

Dedicated Resources for Umbraco Cloud

The Dedicated Resources feature allows Umbraco Cloud customers to switch to non-shared hosting on a per-project basis. This has been possible in the past but only by reaching out to our support staff. Now you have the option to move your project to Dedicated Resources with the click of a button. There are even multiple tiers to choose from so you can get the best and most cost-effective solution.

A few weeks back it was launched for Professional plans with a single tier and now we have released Dedicated Resources for all plans (in all regions). So no matter the size, or location of your project you can get the resources you need when you need them. Dedicated Resources are reserved on a monthly basis, and come as an add-on on top of your basic Umbraco Cloud subscription.

How does it work?

On your Umbraco Cloud projects, you’ll find a new option in the Settings menu, aptly named Dedicated Resources. When you access this you get a list of the available tiers for your project. As shown in the table above there are different tiers for the plans, 1 for Starter plans, 2 for Standard, and 3 tiers available for professional plans.

See the Dedicated Resources product page for up-to-date pricing and information on the feature.

Moving your project to the Dedicated Tier of your choice is as simple as clicking the button - as soon as you’ve made your choice Umbraco Cloud will start upgrading the project to Dedicated Resources. It’s a matter of minutes until the project is upgraded, it can vary a bit depending on the size, number of environments, etc.

And it’s the same process for downgrading the project. Simply go to the Dedicated Resources page and click the downgrade button and let us handle the rest.
