While we don't offer the ability to scale your current Managed Database, you'll need to deploy a new, larger database and then import your existing database into it. We have this guide that shows you the step-by-step process for exporting/importing your database. After all the data is moved to the larger cluster, you can delete the original one in order to prevent it from accruing additional charges.
