Kubernetes Cluster Droplet sizes

Hi there,

Is it possible to setup a Kubernetes Cluster that uses distinct Droplet sizes per container? i.e. Queue Workers uses 10 x $5 Droplets and the PHP Instances use 5 x $40 Droplets? Or to all Pods need to run on the same Droplet types?

Could anyone help me with this? Thanks!

Hello @mike85 ,

Yes, it is possible to use different sizes of worker nodes in the same Kubernetes cluster. Node gets their sizing/capacity data from the nodepool settings. You can create two nodepools of different sizes/plan. For more details refer here::

I hope it helps.
