E2E Application scaling (EAS) enables you to dynamically scale compute nodes based on varying workloads and a defined policy. Using this feature, you can meet the seasonal or varying demands of infrastructure while optimizing the cost.
The core unit of EAS is a scale group. The following list covers the features and capabilities of scale groups:
- Rule based Policy setup for adding nodes based on workload
- Integration with Load Balancer to automatically list or de-list backend servers
- Automatic removal of nodes when utilization falls below a set threshold
- SSH access to each node enables activities like log viewing, debugging etc
Before you define your first scale group, we recommend familiarizing yourself with concepts and terminologies.
