What is autoscaling in Hypernode?

In the eCommerce landscape, Magento and Shopware webshops often experience both busy and quiet periods. It’s similar to physical stores where certain days and times attract more visitors. 

For a Magento 2 webshop, this means that during peak moments, there is a greater need for server resources compared to quieter periods. At Hypernode, we offer customers the ability to automatically upgrade and downgrade their hosting plan, ensuring they always have the extra resources they need. For example, if you have a sale planned and expect high visitor traffic, you can choose to upgrade to a larger plan to keep your site performing optimally based on the conditions you had set.

How does autoscaling work at Hypernode?

At Hypernode, we strive to make the process of upgrading or downgrading your hosting plan as easy as possible for everyone. Vertical autoscaling, in other words means upgrading your plan automatically when your server needs it, so you don’t need to worry about constant monitoring. 

Through the Hypernode Control Panel, you can easily modify your current plan to a larger or smaller version. Your plan will be upgraded to the next possible plan within the same provider, increasing your resources while keeping the disk size the same. The upgrade is effective for 24h, after which your Hypernode will return to your regular plan.

The additional cost is equivalent to what you would pay for one day on a larger plan. It’s important to note that the Autoscaling feature itself is entirely free of charge.

In addition to scheduling up- or downgrades via the Control Panel, you can also do so through the command line using the Hypernode API. Using the API allows you to automatically upgrade or downgrade based on a benchmark you set. 

Many customers choose to schedule upgrades or downgrades during the night to minimize visitor disruption during the day. However, please note that there may be a few minutes of downtime during the process.

Efficient data synchronization

To provide you with more resources for your Magento webshop, we need to move all your data to a new, larger, or smaller managed hosting environment. 

This process is called data synchronization, and at Hypernode, we do it extremely efficiently. We make a copy of your data and synchronize it to the new server without taking your “old” server offline. This prepares the migration process and minimizes potential downtime. 

Once all the data is synchronized, we take the Magento shop on the old hosting plan offline and initiate an automatic process to get you back online as quickly as possible on a larger or smaller plan.

Swapping live volumes: an efficient approach

Swapping live volumes: an efficient approach

We employ a live volume swapping method, where we install a new Hypernode without copying the data over the network to the new hosting environment. Next, we detach the volume using the API and mount it on the new machine before adjusting the DNS. This process is similar to swapping a hard drive from one computer to a larger one. 

This approach offers significant time savings, particularly in scenarios where numerous files on the disk can change during a traditional migration, resulting in longer downtime during the second synchronization.
