Scaling/upgrading the Cloud DB instance

How can I scale my database instance?

Currently I am using the trial account but my data is getting exceeded above 1 GB limit. I need to purchase Database S5 edition while retaining my existing database.

Can I just purchase a new account and merge it with my older one {using the archived data from “Identity Domain SFTP Details” from the Services page of the cloud DB instance} or is there any other standard approach to scale the DB instance.

Also, similarly if my S5 edition gets filled, can I upgrade to S20 using the same approach as with the trial account?

Thanks in Advance!!!

    Hi -

    To move from a trial to a paid subscription, you have to unload your trial and load into the paid subscription. (Yes, I know . . . . .)

    Right now, the issue is the same for upgrading from any paid subscription to another, but that is temporary. The intent is to allow in-place upgrades for paid subscriptions.

    Thanks for your interest.
