Q: Can I scale up or down the number of instances running in my existing deployment?
A: At the moment, no. We have a plan to include this functionality in the future.

Q: Does CCX provide a High-availability feature?
A: Yes

Q: Can I change the database configuration?

Q: Does CCX support multiple AZs?
A: CCX supports multiple AZs if the Cloud Provider does.

Q: Can write-only instances and read-only replicas be created?
A: Yes, but the write-only instances are read-write. It allows both reads and writes.

Q: Does CCX support the use of a Proxy or Load Balancer (for example, if there are 2 or more Read Replica instances, then Read can be load-balanced across multiple instances)?
A: DNS is used to facilitate this. However, the user can create his load balancer (such as HAProxy or ProxySQL) and connect to the database service. A load balancer should be placed as close as possible to the user’s application. We recommend that the end-user manages the load balancer.

A: Yes, backups are created automatically. The user can set the frequency.

Q: Is there an auto-upgrade SQL version feature, for minor and major updates?
