Scaling dedicated plans

I'm not sure which plan I need, but it will be dedicated. Now, what I wonder, since I've seen the terms "scale" on the page:

If I get a "Dedicated 16 GB" plan, and after 2 months of installing and tuning it turns out it's not enough, can it be easily scaled up to "Dedicated 32 GB" plan, or do I have to reinstall all the software on that instance again?

Like any other Linode plan, dedicated plans are resizeable. If you needed a 32GB dedicated after getting a 16GB, you can resize your Linode as you can with any other plan.

For reference, look at this guide, which provides instructions on resizing a Linode.

Thank you for the info.
