Elastic CloudFlare Stream Storage

Hey there,

I’m operating a large video service and I’m finding I need to constantly go into my CloudFlare Stream settings and increase the storage amount multiple times per month.

Is there a way I can set this to be “elastic”, as in it will expand forever and automatically bill me? Or is there an API somewhere that I can check how much storage I have left, how much is used, and an API call I can make to expand it when it gets low? Happy to work with APIs if that exists, but having an “auto elastic” option would be so much better.

Thank you,

Kalob

I don’t think there’s an API option for this. Looking at my dashboard, it gives me 1000 minutes and says I need to contact Cloudflare for an increase. What does it look like for you? Do you get charged for unused storage?

Yeah they charge for unused storage, as far as I know. I don’t mind that so much as long as I can make incremental increases, but that seems to be a blocker. And if my service grows as a rapid rate, I would be need to pay for A LOT of storage that could, theoretically, not be used. Alternatively, I’ll end up going into the dashboard and upgrading storage every other week which is a manual task that nobody wants to do.

Im kind of stuck at this point.

It’s a little late now, so you probably won’t get much of an official answer until after the weekend.

This might be something you’d have to contact Sales for, via email or a phone call.
