Growing cluster with new nodes


Greetings, developers!

I really need to grow my SciDB (16.9) cluster with new nodes, and I am wondering if anybody faced same problem.

I have found several questions related to this topic ( Growing/Shrinking a cluster , Adding new nodes to scidb cluster ), but its all out of the scope due to old versions of SciDB.

Has anything changed? Is there any way to add a node to cluster easily?



Hi Yevgeniy

In the Enterprise Edition this is performed very easily - clusters can grow and shrink with minimal downtime. See But this is an Enterprise Edition feature. Email if interested.

In the Community Edition, you would have to export the data, start a larger cluster and then reload. Using a parallel backup in the “opaque” format would be fastest way to go.
