Seamlessly Handle Demand with Auto Scale

Automatically Grow or Shrink Your Cloud

Unexpected high demand can hurt your application performance—and even a brief performance drop risks losing customers.

The Auto Scale feature of Cloud Servers helps you prepare for high-traffic events and scheduled load changes, like sales promotions and holiday shopping. By creating a few simple rules that you define and control, your application automatically scales to meet user demand.
