@scottalanmiller I would like to scale out for two reasons:two single vCore VPS are much cheaper than a single two core VPS. I'd like to have auto-scaling at a certain point 😄
But I'm not even close to your numbers. At the moment I cannot handle more than 30 perfectly simultaneous connections without giving a lot of 503:

(users are 50 at maximum, hits/s 25)
If it's not a big problem can you tell me what your configuration is?
Using a shared hard drive is cheaper than S3 ^^'. Unluckily I cannot afford performant/nice stuff all the year since there are months that my site have 50k views/day, others that have 2k. Adsense doesn't make me earn enough ^^'
And do you use the free CloudFlare plan?
We use Linode and have an 8GB RAM plan. No way to scale out and be as fast or cost effective.
