Is Scaling Up possible without losing session data?

If you change flavor of an instance (using 'nova resize), that has active processes on it the processes are lost after the operation. I want to know if there is a way to change the flavor and have the processes remain after the operation is complete?

Additionally, the instance appears to be unreachable through SSH during the operation. Is there a way to change flavor with no or minimal downtime?

The resize operation is actually stopping and recreating the instance. If you have multiple nodes (and you do not have allow_resize_to_same_host=True in the conf), the instance will exist on a different node.

The is no way to change the flavor without stopping the instance and getting some down time.
