Scale Cluster

Gigapipe can scale your cluster both horizontally (adding more nodes) and vertically (increase machine power). Scaling the cluster means scaling horizontally by adding more nodes.

Scale cluster nodes

Provide the API with a cluster slug, number of shards and replicas to get additional nodes added to your cluster.
