You will be sent an invoice at the end of the month for the total minutes your indexes have been running, regardless of activity. Reach out to an expert if you have any questions.

Pods

An index is made up of pods, which are units of cloud resources (vCPU, RAM, disk) that provide storage and compute for each index. Choose the pod type that works best for your use case.

Indexes

Indexes store your vector embeddings and metadata. Each index uses at least one pod, but you can add more to increase storage capacity.

Scaling

As you grow, you can scale storage capacity by increasing your pod sizes. You can also increase or decrease throughput when needed, by adding replicas to an index.
