Note: It is not possible to change your Matillion ETL for BigQuery instance size. Instead, we advise beginning a new subscription with the instance size you wish to use, migrating resources and then stopping your old subscription. Please contact Matillion Support for more information or help with this.
Before launching Matillion ETL it's worth understanding the available instance types and their limits, allowing you to choose the appropriate instance type for your team. The Matillion ETL client is limited by instance size in the following ways:
- Concurrent users - The number of users that can be using the system at the same time. There is no limit on the number of registered users when security is enabled.
- Environments - The total number of environments across all projects that can be defined in a single instance of Matillion ETL. 1 Environment = 1 Project. Thus, the number of Max Environments is equal to the max number of Projects connected to a server.
- Enterprise Mode - Enterprise-only features are only available on certain instance sizes.
For those launching Matillion ETL through Cloud Formation Templates, there are several premade Templates available via the Template Download page. Each of the templates comes geared toward particular instance sizes; PoC templates work on t2.medium instances while Single Node and Clustered templates work on m4.large and m4.xlarge instances.For more information, please consult the Amazon Documentation on instance sizes.
For more information, please consult the Azure Documentation on instance sizes.
