Resizing Virtual Machine Hardware on Demand

Each virtual desktop and file storage server in a project space has a set hardware type in its definition. When you need more or less cores/memory than the current configuration provides, you can change the hardware size to suit your needs. For example, you may want to size up for a larger problem, or size down to reduce cost.


Note:  To be able to change hardware, you must have the Resize permission in the project space.


To change the hardware size on a virtual machine:

  1. Go to the project space containing the virtual resource.

  2. Ensure that the resource is in the Stopped state.

  3. In the resource tile, click the drop-down and select Hardware.

  4. Click Change hardware.

  5. Select the desired hardware size. Note that you cannot choose hardware from a different instance family.

  6. Click Save.

  7. Wait for the hardware to be updated.

    When the update is complete, you can start the resource.

Resizing a Cluster on Demand

Each HPC cluster resource has a set number of nodes in its definition. When you have a problem that requires more computational power than the current configuration provides, you can add nodes to a cluster to better meet the demands of the workload. Conversely, you can decrease the number of nodes in a cluster when solving a smaller problem, reducing usage costs.


Note:  You must have the Resize permission in the project space to be able to resize a cluster.


To resize a cluster on demand:

  1. Go to the project space containing the HPC cluster resource.

  2. Ensure that the cluster is in either the Stopped or Running state.

  3. In the resource tile, click the drop-down and select Node details.

  4. Click the edit icon next to the number of nodes:

    Increase or decrease the number of nodes as desired, then click the checkmark to confirm the change.

    Note that there must be enough licenses available to support the number of nodes requested. Remember that other users may be using resources that are associated with the same license server.

  5. Wait for the cluster to be resized.
