Scalability on demand?

Posted 9 months ago by cuartas15

I've been through multiple tutorials, where the scalability basically begins since the application is first deployed by configuring load balancers and some guides go as far as making a separate server for each individual function (database, redis, application, etc) which is excessive cost wise honestly.

What if I configure a DO server that is simply enough for a year or two, I have everything there, my application, database, Laravel websockets and then when the time comes I need to assign more resources, how do I proceed in that case? would I need to start from zero to decouple my sever into multiple instances each one doing something different or is there a more simpler approach? what if I just need to allocate more storage? are there any good tutorials explaining these situations?

Any help is really appreciated.
