Requirements for horizontal scaling?

Hello, I would like to run Strapi with some basic horizontal scaling. Following questions arise:

  1. What are the general requirements here ? Some sort of session affinity I guess, and a powerful DB server? Anything else to watch out?
  2. I have experience in deploying strapi to gcloud appengine, did anyone else use it for strapi before and has some experience to share?

Thanks a lot in advance, everybody!

1 all strapi instances need to be in sync content-type wise so you get no DB fights.
2 you can’t use cron jobs unless you have red lock plugin.
