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.

  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.
