Horizontal Scaling In Vultr


I would like to know if horizontal scaling is possible in Vultr.

    Horizontal scaling basically just means deploying more instances to do the same thing, so yes, this is something you can do. We do not have any pre-built automation for this, so it's something you'd need to build if you wanted it.
  • piggy backing on this idea, we want to try to automate this via the api. a couple of problems:

    - when we clone a snapshot, it has no connectivity because the network configuration needs to be updated. how could we connect to this instance programatically in order to update the network configs, or add a script on the server to do it itself? from everything i have researched there doesn't appear to be a way
    - https://my.vultr.com/subs/netconfig/?SUBID= provides network configuration examples with the sub's info conveniently filled in. is there some way to access this via api?
  • @GMorris89 You can configure your host to use DHCP. On boot up, vultrs dhcp servers will send your *static* configuration details relevent to your instance.
