VM Auto Scaling is now available as an Early Access (EA) feature. It is a cloud computing feature that dynamically scales in or scales out the number of virtual machine instances (horizontal scaling) based on customizable monitoring events. The metric-based policy, defined during its configuration, constantly monitors the load and regularly scales the number of VM instances based on the policy threshold. The functionality ensures that the number of replicas in the group remains within the defined constraints.
