Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster autoscaler is now available

Published date: November 04, 2019

AKS cluster autoscaler is now generally available. Cluster autoscaling lets you automatically scale a Kubernetes cluster to meet demand, enabling you to scale more efficiently and run your applications without downtime.

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’re no longer needed. When combined with the horizontal pod autoscaler, youcan precisely tune the scaling behavior of your environment to match your workload demand.
