Sanity check re scalability


(Ali A) #1

Quick question:

  • I have a single server which is running my AkkaHttp app.

  • If I need to scale it, can I just duplicate the server, and both them both behind a load balancer (e.g AWS), and that will distribute the load across them evenly?

  • And then I can just keep adding nodes to this cluster as needed?

Thanks.

Hi @aliakhtar,
Yes you can do it this way. The fact that the load will be distributed evenly it depends on the Load Balancer itself not on the Akka HTTP server.
