      3. If you want a backup data center that can take over running the application in case a disaster renders the applications' data center non-operational, select DR for disaster recovery.

    4. If you require storage in addition to the storage that comes with each application, select Additional storage. Then, specify the units of additional storage required. One unit of additional storage includes 100 GB of block storage and 49 GB of Cloud Storage.

      Optionally, you can select HA to include high-availability and DR to include disaster recovery for the additional storage in your estimate.
