How does adding more resources to a running cloud server work
Live Vertical Scaling (LVS) in the Data Center Designer (DCD) allows the addition of CPU cores, RAM, network interfaces and storage while the server is running and does not require a reboot. Depending on the operating system some or all of these functions may be supported. Please note: LVS is initially disabled for newly created virtual servers. When enabled a new provisioning event is needed the first time LVS is activated manually and it requires the target cirtual server to be restarted.
