What are my options for horizontally scaling a live website which is running slowly
I have a website that is live running on a single droplet (CPU-Optimized / 8 GB / 4 vCPUs) but with 800+ users currently accessing the site it is running very slowly.
From bits I’ve read on here, it would seem that I need to add additional droplets and a load balancer? Is that correct.
Basically I’m looking for a way to increase resources as quickly as possible! Any help or advice would be gratefully received!
