Sleeping inactive environments

The platform’s hibernation feature delivers a convenient way to automatically save utilization charges on low-activity environments (such as staging). Optimal use of resources is achieved by suspending non-active containers and returning released resources back to the platform.

Because they are in sleep mode, hibernated containers do not consume compute resources (only disk space). As a result, you save money while your containers are in hibernate mode. If applications are needed again, the platform returns them to a running state again in just a few seconds upon receiving a new HTTP/HTTPS request.

This is an account-wide feature and by default it is turned off for all customers with paid accounts. At your request, we can activate hibernation and enable environments to automatically sleep after a certain number of hours (configurable to your specification).
