Fly Postgres

Hello, I’m testing Fly Postgres database and it suggests me to scale it to have at least 2 instances, but I wonder, if I do fly machine clone will it share the same database volume between these two machines? Thanks for the answer in advance.

Hi @eyouu

Cloning a machine will make a new volume just for that machine

Thanks for the answer, so if in my case my application logic depends on database data I should only have 1 instance?

Our postgres uses a replication architecture so you can create replicas in other regions for faster reads.

Having replicas also help in the case of your primary having issues so a replica could take the role of new primary.
