Support for more worker nodes per Kubernetes cluster

You can now use Container Engine for Kubernetes to create clusters with up to 2,000 managed nodes per cluster.

With more worker nodes in a single cluster, you can deploy larger workloads on that cluster to achieve better resource utilization and lower operational overhead. And you have fewer, larger environments to secure, monitor, upgrade, and manage.

The increased number of worker nodes is only available with enhanced clusters.
