Migrate Between Clusters

Zilliz Cloud supports migrating data between Zilliz Cloud clusters. You can seamlessly transfer data from a serverless cluster to a dedicated cluster or between two dedicated clusters.

From serverless to dedicated cluster

To gain enhanced control over resources and performance beyond what a serverless cluster offers, consider transitioning your business from a serverless cluster to a dedicated cluster.

  • Ensure your payment method is set up to access this feature.

  • You can make use of the migration between clusters to change the CU settings for your data.

In the Actions drop-down button, select Migrate to Dedicated Cluster.

On the page that opens,

  • Select the subscription plan and Target Project,

  • Enter the Cluster Name and password,

  • Specify the Cloud Provider and Cloud Region, and

  • Determine the CU settings.


After filling out the details, click Migrate Cluster. Zilliz Cloud will then create a dedicated cluster with the specified settings, initiating the data migration from the serverless cluster.

The dedicated cluster status will switch from CREATING to RESTORING, and finally to RUNNING. Upon completion, you can connect to the dedicated cluster and access the migrated data. See Connect to Cluster for further details.

From dedicated to another dedicated cluster

By migrating between dedicated clusters, you can modify your cluster type, region, and scale down your cluster at ease, without interrupting your business on the original cluster.


This feature is accessible to users on the Standard or Enterprise plans.

  1. Navigate to your target cluster. On the Cluster Details page, click Actions in the upper right corner, and then click Migrate From. Select Dedicated Cluster.

  2. In the dialogue box,

    1. Select your Source Project, Source Cluster, and Source Collection.

    2. Verify the information of the target cluster.

    3. Click Confirm to proceed. (Note: Only a running dedicated cluster can be chosen as the data migration source.)

  3. In the Migration Records, view the new migration record that appears. The status of this record will change from MIGRATING to SUCCESSFUL once the data migration is complete.


  4. After the migration, click Show Collection under the Action column of this migration record to view the details of the migrated collection.
