Microsoft conventionally makes a lot of significant announcements during its Build developer conferences. This year, the company has announced that it has added the option of auto-scaling to its Azure cloud-computing platform.


Windows Azure

This is certainly good news for developers. The option of auto-scaling essentially means that developers can dynamically add servers on their Azure accounts. To make use of this feature, you can simply navigate to the management console of Azure.

In the console, you can set the maximum and minimum number of servers that you want to run on Azure at any given time. Moreover, developers can also define the exact CPU load that may be used by each of these servers.

Such scaling of servers will enable developers to bring more speed and heavy-duty functionality to web apps. The option also means that the resources are used far more efficiently, thus trimming down the costs for the developers. The feature is already available in preview and will be publicly available to all Azure users in the coming weeks.

It is intriguing to note here that other cloud-computing platforms, such as the one supported by Amazon, is already offering the option of auto-scaling. So Microsoft is essentially trying to offer similar features in an attempt to catch up with the competition.
