What Is Auto Scaling?
Auto scaling is where the number of resources made available to your cloud solution can be increased/decreased depending on traffic requirements.
Why Use Auto Scaling?
Auto scaling allows you to increase user concurrency when you need it without having to upgrade your hosting solution permanently.
The Nexcess Cloud and Auto Scaling
Nexcess Cloud Auto Scaling is enabled automatically on all cloud solutions. Each solution comes with 12 hours free. If you do not wish to take advantage of Nexcess Cloud Auto Scaling, you can quickly disable it in the Client Portal.
How Does Scaling Work?
Auto scaling monitors your website and triggers a scaling event whenever traffic begins to exceed concurrent user capacity.*
A scaling event adjusts the PHP process limit to accommodate bursts in user concurrency on your site.
