Each Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central cloud instance comes with 80 GB of database storage, which is more than ample for most organizations. Some businesses have unique scenarios that may require additional storage. For those organizations that need more space, we’ve introduced a new add-on SKU that provides additional storage capacity, available now by contacting your Microsoft representative.
While providing additional storage capacity as needed, our goal continues to be to have most customers operate without any requirement for additional storage. To meet the needs of even more customers with the basic 80 GB allocation, we are planning a set of investments over upcoming releases to more efficiently use database capacitylimiting the need for additional storage. Roadmap content and timing are subject to change, but examples of planned capabilities include:
To help customers migrating from Dynamics NAV understand their storage requirements in Business Central, a utility will be provided to estimate the size of the database once migrated to Business Central with the above capabilities. We are validating the utility today with a few sample databases and expect to make it available this quarter.
To help customers manage and plan their storage costs on an ongoing basis, Business Central admin dashboards will provide visibility of total storage usage along with details on the top tables by size. Customers should be aware that exceeding the paid storage limit will not interrupt transaction processing. Beginning with the 2020 release wave 2, we plan to block administrative actions that create additional database copies when paid storage limits are exceeded; details will be provided in the release plan for wave 2 when it is published in July 2020.
Please contact a trusted Microsoft solution provider or contact our sales team via chat, phone, or email to add additional storage to Dynamics 365 Business Central, or for specific guidance to help you solve business-critical challenges.
