Automatically grow or shrink your cloud

Make your cloud react automatically to changes in user demand for your application. By creating a few simple rules that you define and control, you let us know when and how to grow (or shrink) your cloud’s web or application tiers. That’s it—Auto Scale does the rest.

Scale up

Deliver the best experience

Automatically add servers to meet high demand, to help keep your site running smoothly.

Scale down

Save money

Automatically remove servers when demand is low, to avoid over-provisioning.


Have peace of mind

Automate manual tasks, to reduce errors and help you focus on your application.

With Auto Scale, you can prepare for unexpected load changes, as well as those you’re anticipating—such as holiday shopping seasons, sales campaigns, and predictable traffic patterns. Auto Scale can handle it all for you, easily.

How to get started
