Creating Clusters

Create clusters through the Webscale Control Panel

A cluster is a collection of servers or containers that can be used to scale an application horizontally. Webscale supports both Virtual Machine (VM) based clusters as well as Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) clusters. In order to create a cluster, you must first add your provider via the Providers tab. For more information, check out Working with Providers.

Cluster types

Webscale supports two different types of clusters: VM and Kubernetes.

Once created, cluster configurations and their blueprints can always be edited. VM cluster deployments can be managed manually or through Managed Deployments. Kubernetes deployments must be managed through Managed Deployments.

Associate the cluster to an application

Once you’ve added a cluster you can link it to an application for scaling. To access these settings, log in to your Webscale Dashboard and click the 3 vertical dots on the upper right corner of the box for the application you wish to view and click Edit from the dropdown. From here, click Servers. Then, choose the existing cluster from the dropdown under Scaling Cluster.
