Modifying your cluster

You can modify your cluster by modifying:

  • Cluster name and password
  • Instance type
  • Volume properties
  • Networking type
  • Database configuration parameters
  • High availability

You can't switch from a single node cluster or a high availability cluster to an extreme high availability cluster or vice versa.
