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.
