[Base, Advanced, and Enterprise tiers only] Using the solution template, you can scale out a base number of nodes (x) during deployment. Selecting Scale Out-2x allows you to deploy from 2 to 32 nodes (in multiples of 2), or Scaled Out-4x to deploy from 4 to 64 nodes (in multiples of 4). If you are not ready to scale out during deployment, select Scaled Out-Ready to deploy from 1 to 32 nodes that are available to scale out in the future.

To determine how many nodes are supported for your system, see Supported Node Counts.
