Scaling Octopus Server

Will the Octopus Server scale horizontally? That is, does Octopus Server support installation on multiple nodes in a load-balanced environment?

We are looking at scaling out for periods of heavy use. We have also considered moving our Octopus Server to Azure, but the Azure SLA requires multiple VM instances in an availability set.


Currently Octopus only scales vertically; for DR we suggest having a backup server standing by, but we don’t support running in a cluster. This is something we’re hoping to address in Octopus 2.0, to at least give you the option of clustering the Octopus database.

Hope that helps,
