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