Pausing and Resuming Clusters

You can avoid charges accumulating in your account by pausing clusters when you aren’t using them.

You cannot pause a Viridian Dedicated cluster if it’s hosted on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Pausing a Cluster

Pausing your cluster can help minimize your costs because you are charged only for running clusters. Development clusters are paused automatically when you don’t connect to the cluster for 6 hours.

  1. Sign into the Hazelcast Viridian console and select your cluster.

  2. Click Pause and confirm your choice.

If you’re using a Viridian Serverless production cluster, Hazelcast saves your cluster data so that you can resume the cluster at a later time.

What is cluster data?

Cluster data includes the following:

  • Configuration settings

  • Cluster-side modules

  • Jobs

  • Map and JCache data structures

If you’re using a Viridian Serverless development cluster, all cluster data is lost after the cluster is paused.

Resuming a Cluster

  1. Sign into the Hazelcast Viridian console and select your cluster.

  2. Click Resume.
