Can n8n start multiple instances and share a database?

I want to deploy an n8n cluster. There are many tasks, and I am afraid that only one node is not enough.

Can n8n start multiple instances and share a database?

Hi @Hao_Tan

If you just start multiple regular n8n instances you could potentially have duplication of work.

The best way to scale n8n is described in our docs here: Scaling n8n | Docs

There is also a recording from a livestream that explains how this works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnoE0xV8BX8

I hope these resources can help you better understand how to scale n8n. Feel free to ask any other questions you might have :slight_smile:
