9 November 2021

  • Fedora 35 base image is now available in the control panel and via the API.

  • You can now scale load balancers with more granularity by adding or removing nodes. The number of nodes a load balancer contains determines how many simultaneous connections and requests per second it can manage.

    Each additional node increases the load balancer’s maximum:

    • Requests per second by 10,000
    • Simultaneous connections by 10,000
    • New SSL connections per second by 250

    You can add up to 100 nodes to a load balancer.

    The scaling feature is not available in the following regions at this time: AMS2, NYC2, SFO1. In these regions, you can only create load balancers with one node, which equates to a small size load balancer under the legacy scaling system.

    The load balancer’s cost per month is based on the number of nodes it contains.
