Auto Scaling Cloud Infrastructure and Applications

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, we will show you how to use OpenStack's Heat, Monasca, and Neutron, to autoscale your application! Autoscaling helps you maintain application reliability and intelligently scales your infrastructure while managing infrastructure costs. 

In the Liberty release you will be able to use performance and health metrics to trigger scaling policies in Heat. This powerful feature enables the following use cases and much more:

  • Dynamically remove VMs when load is low

  • Automatically scale up to larger VMs when load is high

  • Increase reliability and automatically recover from failed VMs

  • Automatically rebalance application traffic via the Neutron LBaaS

As part of this presentation the audience will learn more about how we have implemented autoscaling, some of the challenges faced during the implementation, and application autoscaling best practices. We will also demonstrate horizontal autoscaling a sample web application while rebalancing incoming traffic with 0 down time.
