What’s autoscaling?

Auto-scaling is a way to automatically increase or decrease the number of computing resources that are being assigned to your application based on your needs at any given time. It emerged from cloud computing technology, which revolutionized the way computer resources are allocated, enabling the creation of a fully scalable server in the cloud. When an application needs more computing power, you can launch additional features on-demand and use them for as long as you want.
