SQL Data max Size

I have one SQL server with elastic pool enabled.

On the elastic pool the Data Max Size set to 200GB and this SQL contains of 22 database.

Current elastic pool datas storage is 78% used space and this mean I still have around 44 GB.

Also today i have DB with data used 100GB

So with this condition i have 2 questions:

  • Can i expand the DB from 100GB to 140GB (with assumption i still have 44GB free space)
  • If i need expand this DB to 200GB, this mean the Data Max Size on the elastic pool should be expanded also?
  • Can the DB inside the elastic pool have max size more than max size on the elastic pool?

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    you can expand the database from 100GB to 140GB if you still have around 44GB of free space in your elastic pool. This should not be an issue.

    The maximum size of a database inside an elastic pool cannot exceed the maximum size set for the elastic pool itself. If the elastic pool has a maximum size of 200GB, no single database inside the pool can exceed this limit.
