Expanding Your Cluster

You can expand your cluster by adding new nodes to it. New nodes will only serve new topics or new partitions, and existing partitions will not be automatically rebalanced to use the new nodes. If you require partition reassignment please submit a support request to Instaclustr Support. 

  1. To add nodes to your existing cluster, first login to the Instaclustr Console.
  2. Click the Add Nodes button in the menu for the cluster you wish to add the nodes to.
    Click the "Add Nodes" button in the sidebar to add more nodes to that cluster.
  3. On the Add Nodes page choose the number of new nodes you want to add to your cluster. To begin the provisioning process, press the Add New Nodes button.
    View the information about the nodes you wish to add with this Add Nodes page.


Note: To ensure consistent stability and performance, Instaclustr Support will verify the health of your cluster before provisioning additional nodes. We aim to complete this process within one business day and will contact you once the additional nodes have been provisioned.
