How to Scale Server Size on Vultr via CloudwaysJune 22, 2017

 

In this KB

  • Scaling the size of your server (CPU, memory, and disk)

 

Like Digital Ocean, Vultr allows you to increase server size (CPU, memory, and disk) all at once. You can increase your server resources in a few easy steps.

Step 1: View Current Configuration of the Server

Log into the Cloudways Platform with your credentials. Click on Servers in the top menu bar and select your desired server from the list. You can check the current server size (memory, disk) from the Server Management area.

Step 2: Scaling Server Size

Unlike other providers, you can only scale up the size (CPU and memory) of your server. For downscaling, you will need to clone your server.

The following steps detail how you can scale up your server:

  1. Click on the Vertical Scaling section under the Server Management area.
  2. Underneath Vertical Scaling, you will see the scaling options available to you.
  3. Choose the new server size (mouse over each size for a description).
  4. Click on the Scale Now button to start the scaling process.

Note: The applications in the server will be DOWN while the scaling process takes place. The time that the scaling process will take, will vary between providers.

Wait for the scaling process to complete.
