Multi-tier (more than one server for my application, load balancer, web servers, database server...)
I would love to have the option of setting up a multi-server application for more targeted and cost effective scaling. For instance, Say I could create a Wordpress site with a dedicated DB server, a dedicated load balancer, and a dedicated Web server. As my site grows, I can scale the specific part that is needed. If my site is gets a lot of views (reads), but doesn't make many writes, scaling my existing web server (or adding another instance) may be what's needed. If I'm running a WooCommerce site and start pushing the limits of my db server, increasing the resources or implementing replication might make more sense. It would be really great to have that level of control when growing a site.

Plus 1. Just looked at the managed DBs from DO (https://www.digitalocean.com/products/managed-databases/). Would be great if this could be easily integrated!
Yes, this feature is basically missing from CloudWays. They support scale-up so you can upgrade to the next best thing (higher spec server, etc), but not scale-out yet for a tiered design i.e. 3-tier application. This way you can scale just the web application layer or the database or other components as needed as you grow your business.
This should be the number one goal for 2020 and judging from the likes, it's the most requested feature. Make it happen!
PLUS 1 - Need this!!
would really love to see that

Hello Team, Do you have any updates to the current status of the project ? - Thank you !
This is an amazing idea and I have been searching for similar service all over but couldn't find one made for non-developers.
Anyone working on this?
Any release date yet Team Cloudways?
Any news please ?
When it will be released ?
This is very nice but the problem is, cloudway is very expensive when you go to big plans, I think this is the biggest inconvenience that cloudway has, that after the medium server is already very expensive and server scale starts to be expensive. I know a lot of people who have a blog that do not go to the cloudway just because in the future it's expensive (when you change to a big plan). And this is an expensive function, in cludway it will surely be very expensive.

Finally we have this in private beta in the form or a managed private Kubernetes cluster. We are running a number of customers on top of it (up to millions of visits per day) and gathering feedback.
Currently the cluster product is running only on top of Google Cloud but we plan to expand availability.
This will be a high touch service for people overflowing the current platform and that need much higher levels of scalability and availability.
We don't have an ETA for public availability yet.

What now, are they going to add this feature in it or not???
i want to know about the recent updates?NY ONE KNOWN THIS
Any idea on when this might be available? I got a couple of people who might be interested then this if the performance can be better than a standard server running laravel.
