Increasing Apps V2 availability

Hmm I am a bit confused, fly scale count 2 is something that is valid for v2 apps using machines? I thought the only way to add additional machines for HA was to use the fly machines clone command?

As for the flags, what behavior would be gained by adding these two flags? The reason I ask is that it seems these flags could be either adding a “autoscaling” feature or they could be adding the sit around and wait for outages standby machine behavior?

I am trying to gain the standby machine HA that will take over if the primary machines are no longer accessible by the proxy.

Also, can we place standby machines in other regions in the case that an entire region is down? This all might also relate to my latest post:
