One of the key promises of cloud computing is its elasticity i.e. the capability to provision more or less resources in order to cope with a higher or lower load respectively. One particularly desirable capability (unless you like being paged at 3am :) is automated scaling, typically achieved by configuring triggers for scaling actions. In this talk we will take a look at what OpenStack has to offer on the autoscaling front.
