Change the Size of the Server

Table of Contents

Objective

To change the instance size and/or image of a database server.

Background

Over the lifecycle of your database, it may become necessary to change the total size of the stripe of volumes that are being used to store your MySQL data.  Typically, you will want to grow the size of the database, but there may be some scenarios where you will want to shrink the size of the volume stripe.  Fortunately, the steps to perform both actions is relatively the same.  There are several different ways to grow the size of your database setup.

  1. Keep the number of volumes in the stripe the same, but increase the total size of the stripe  (See Change the Total Size of the Volume Stripe)
  2. Keep the volume settings the same, but increase the instance size of the database servers to increase performance 
  3. Increase the number of volumes in the stripe  (See Change the Number of Volumes in a Stripe)


This tutorial will only focus on the second scenario.

Since each application and database is unique, you will need to perform some sandbox tests to determine which changes make the most sense for your project. 

Steps

To change the instance size and/or image of the database Servers, see Upgrade Database Servers.
