Mastodon one-click that auto-scales

Does the Mastodon one-click deployment feature auto-scaling? If not, may I suggest that, given the recent explosion of interest in M, developing a one-click that features auto-scaling could be a huge winner for you guys. A deployment that hides k8s complexity and saves the admin money would be incredible.

Have a nice day,

Hey @jcheroske,

The current 1-Click Mastodon installation, creates a Droplet, and autoscaling is not an option for Droplets as of the time being. You could however upgrade your Droplet manually at any time as your Mastodon server grows.

Having a 1-Click deployment for Mastodon on the DigitalOcean Kubernetes sounds like a great idea!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

I will also forward this feedback internally to the Marketplace team!

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
