Capacity Upgrade on Demand concepts

With Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD), you can activate additional processors and memory units on selected servers by purchasing a permanent processor or memory unit activation feature. CUoD adds capacity for new workloads, which enables your server to adapt to unexpected performance demands.

Make sure that you have prepared your server before continuing. For more information, see Preparing for Capacity on Demand.

With appropriate planning, you can determine exactly when to activate CUoD based on your current and future workloads. Without appropriate planning and preparation, you might not obtain the maximum potential that is available through CUoD.
