[New Feature] Ability to test capacity on your app for free



We know that capacity can sometime be seen as an abstract concept and it may not be easy to test the impact of adding some units to your app. We just added a way for you to test adding capacity units to your app, so that you can experience the speed boost. You can add from 1 to 5 units if you’re on a professional plan and above, and add 2 units if you’re on a personal plan (so that you can see how it would work on a professional plan).

When you use such a boost, the additional units will be applied for one hour, and you can do this up to three times every calendar month.

Happy boosting!


Fantastic work. This will be really useful.


That’s what i’m talking about!


This is excellent folks.

Are the Live and Dev environments independent from each other from a capacity point of view?

In other words, when I add the units of capacity, do those units get added to both Live and Dev at once or do they get assigned to the Live environment only or something else?

Many thanks!!


Capacity is assigned to an app independently from the version, and the boost follows the same rule.


Fantastic! Really smart feature.


Thanks Emmanuel!


echo that. really smart feature


This is start-up thinking, thank you!


Awesome! This should help us evaluate if we need additional capacity and also would work as a proof that the extra capacity would indeed improve performance.

Features like this, keeps me wanting to continue working and building on Bubble.


@emmanuel is there is a way to define capacity in more numerical values that will allow us to correlate linearly resources needed. for example RAM/ CPU power assigned. I am not sure if capacity is a additional instance of a virtual machine or what


“test up to 3 times a month”

How long each time?


1 hour, I think. When I boosted yesterday, it told me, “59 minutes remaining.”
