scale without downtime
The scaling process currently results in significant downtime. It would be amazing if we could scale up and down without downtime.

The only way in which to do this is to utilize shared storage. The trade off with that is significantly reduced disk performance in terms of both latency and, usually, IOPs. We are considering adding the option to use Storm Block Storage as a backing volume for instances rather than local storage, however this will result in poorer disk performance than utilizing local storage for most use cases.
