Generally Available: AKS cluster autoscaler
Published date: November 04, 2019
With AKS, customers can simplify deployment and operations of Kubernetes. Today, we are announcing general availability of AKS cluster autoscaler, enabling customers to scale more efficiently and run their applications without downtime. Cluster autoscaling allows customers to automatically scale a Kubernetes cluster to meet demand.
Based on the Kubernetes cluster autoscaler, AKS autoscaling automatically adds new instances to the Azure virtual machine scale set when more capacity is required and removes them when they are no longer needed. When combined with the horizontal pod autoscaler, customers can precisely tune the scaling behavior of their environment to match their workload demand.
