Cosmos db Shared database throughput for 25 containers + 26th Container with Provisioned Throughput

Mathew James 381 Reputation points

Hi Everyone -

We are using a Cosmos db account in Production which was created in Shared database throughput mode. We have reached a Max of 25 Collection which is the upper limit for Shared Database throughput.

Here are my Questions :-

  1. Can I create the 26th Container in Provisioned throughput mode ? is this allowed ?
  2. If allowed, I believe i can also enable auto scaling of this newly created container in Provisioned throughput ? right ?

Appreciate your response.

    You can create a support request to the product team to remove this constraint so that you can create more containers.

    For the second question, enabling Auto scale on the new container should not be an issue.
