Automated scaling and resource management

Automated scaling and resource management are critical components of cloud infrastructure management that allow businesses to dynamically adjust the allocation of resources in response to changes in workload demand. This section explores various strategies, tools, and practices that enable cloud environments to efficiently scale resources up or down to optimize performance, cost, and user experience.

Here’s a comprehensive look at the key aspects that will be covered in this section:

  • Auto-scaling: Auto-scaling involves automatically adjusting the number of compute resources, such as virtual machines or containers, based on changes in demand. This ensures that the application can handle varying levels of traffic without manual intervention. Auto-scaling policies can be configured to trigger scaling actions based on metrics such as CPU utilization, memory usage, or network traffic.
  • Load balancing: Load balancing evenly distributes...
