Scaling Scoold up - Pro vs Pro Unlimited

I want to scale up Scoold and I am wondering how to make it possible.

Given the current setup:

  • the deployment environment is K8s/OpenShift
  • 1 pod running for Scoold, 1 pod for Para and 1 pod hosting Postgres
  • about 20 users that daily use Scoold

I need to open it to a greater number of users (about 1K+).

  1. Bringing the pods to 3 for Scoold and Para, would it help?
  2. Which else could help?
  3. Which is the difference between the Pro and the Pro Unlimited. Is it only licensing model? Where can I find more info about Pro Unlimited?
  4. If I deploy it on GCP, using GKE, which database would you recommend? (MongoDB is not a possible choice)

One pod can definitely handle thousands of users, if it has enough memory and cpu.

  1. One pod for Para and one for Scoold should be enough
  2. Try adding more CPU or memory if necessary
  3. Scoold Pro and Scoold Pro unlimited are the same product, but with unlimited you can run Scoold Pro on any number of hosts.
  4. Use CloudSQL or Mongo Atlas

As I said, MongoDB (or atlas) is not a possible choice. I was wondering if Para is compatible with BigTable or Cloud Firestore

BigTable and Cloud Firestore are not supported yet but can be added in the future.
