Question

load balance for horizontal scale apps

Load Balancing

https://developers.digitalocean.com/documentation/v2/#remove-droplets-from-a-load-balancer

the load balance I got at the above url is only for droplets.

To assign a Droplet to a load balancer instance, send a POST request to /v2/load_balancers/$LOAD_BALANCER_ID/droplets

Does it work for horizontal scale apps also?

Hi there,

Load balancing is a built-in part of how App Platform works, meaning you don’t need to enable or configure it:

With the App Platform, you can scale your application horizontally by increasing the number of containers, or vertically by increasing the container size as described here:

Hope that this helps!
