      Zones

      Each Google Cloud region contains a number of independent zones. These consist of one or more discrete data centers that are isolated from failures in other zones. Capella can automatically distribute cluster nodes across multiple zones in a region for the highest availability. Every cluster in Capella is deployed with a minimum of three nodes.

      The Multiple Zones option is the default when creating clusters using the Developer Pro or Enterprise Service Plans.

      The option to deploy across multiple Google Cloud zones is only available for clusters that use the Developer Pro or Enterprise Service Plans. Clusters using the Basic service plan deploy all nodes to the same zone.

      Configuration Options

      Clusters deployed onto Google Cloud have several configuration options that allow you to customize clusters to fit your requirements.

      Nodes

      As they’re intended for evaluation purposes only, self-service trial clusters only include 1 node.

      Clusters have a minimum of 3 nodes and a maximum of 27.

      Clusters consist of service groups that include the Couchbase services deployed and system resources. Each service group has a node quantity to represent the number of nodes in the cluster with that configuration. Individual service groups can have between 2 and 27 nodes but cannot collectively exceed 27. The service group that includes the Data Service requires at least 3 nodes.

      Compute and Memory

      Capella provides the following compute configurations for clusters deployed onto Google Cloud.

      This configuration is only available for self-service trial clusters in Capella.

      Storage Size

      Capella clusters deployed onto Google Cloud use SSD persistent disks (PD-SSD). These are suited for high-performance database needs that require lower latency and more IOPS than standard persistent disks provide.

      The amount of storage available per node in your cluster is configurable from a minimum of 50 GB (the maximum for self-service trials).

      Storage Speed

      Storage speed is measured in IOPS (input/output operations per second) that the cluster performs. Persistent disk speed is determined by the disk size and cannot be customized on its own. PD-SSDs receive 30 read and 30 write IOPS per GB provisioned, for an overall 60 IOPS per GB.

      To increase the read and write performance of the disk, increase the storage size. For example, the default 50 GB storage has a maximum read speed of 1500 IOPS and a maximum write speed of 1500 IOPS. Increasing the storage to 100 GB increases the maximum read speed to 3000 IOPS and the maximum write speed to 3000 IOPS.
