Consider the following limitations before deciding to scale out or scale in.
|Vantage license tier||Developer tier is not supported.|
|Maximum node limit||Do not scale out the system beyond the maximum node limit of four times the original node count.|
|Maximum volume count per node limit||Do not scale in the system if it increases the volume count beyond 24 per instance.|
|Maximum scale out limit||Do not scale out the system beyond the maximum node count limit. You cannot go beyond the minimum storage subpool count of 2 per node.
Do not scale out beyond four times the size of a deployed 24-AMPs-per-node system. There are 3 AMPs in a storage subpool. With 24 AMPs per node in an initial system deployment, there are 8 storage subpools per node.
|Minimum scale in limit||Do not scale in the system beyond the maximum storage subpool count of 8 per node.|
