Yes, that is correct, Jay. I mentioned that in walkthrough and in 
wireframes with the note "More views needed (for deploying, scaling, 
managing roles)".

I would say there might be two approaches - one is to specify which node 
profile you want to scale in order to select how much power you want to add.

The other approach is just to scale the number of nodes in a role and 
let system decide the best match (which node profile is chosen will be 
decided on the best fit, probably).

I lean towards the first approach, where you specify what role and which 
node profile you want to use for scaling. However this is just 
introduction of the idea and I believe we can get answers until we get 
to that step.

Any preferences for one of above mentioned approaches?
