Does convert to DDBv5 also enable Horizontal Scaling?

Hi all,

Sorry for yet another question. But I love the quick feedback I get on this platform! :-)

I have a customer running DDBv4 who wants to leverage DDBv5 with Horizontal Scaling.

I know that we have the ConvertDDBToV5 workflow, or alternativelywe could convert the DDB manually.

But would that also enable Horizontal Scaling automatically? Or is there some separate procedure required for getting horizontal scaling?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

My understanding is that you still have to manually enable horizontal scaling of DDBs.

OK, so it can simply be enabled on existing DDB’s?

No need to seal/convert/create new DDB?

I was expecting something like that.

Yes, there is no need to seal/convert/create. You can simply enable Horizontal scaling at anytime using below Media Management config param.

Hey folks,

Some video resources I want to share from the now free On-demand learning library:

Just wanted to add something in case someone else stumbles across this thread.

Unfortunately the video @Damian Andre posted confirms that enabling this Media Management option is not enough. This will only apply to newly created DDB’s.

So, we would need to completely rebaseline everything to migrate to Horizontal Scaling.
