Autoscaling Instances

What is autoscaling?

Autoscaling, in easy to understand terms, is a way of dynamically allocating hardware resources to a website, based on website traffic increasing (or decreasing). 

Autoscaling is recommended for websites which have exceptionally website traffic, such as an enterprise-level E-commerce store, a social media platform, a hosted CRM for a large organisation, or other a website which has a high chance of ‘going viral’ in the near future. 

Autoscaling vs standard hosting

A standard website hosting platform, to website visitors, is fairly simple; A monthly or yearly charge to host a website, which can then handle site visitors, process digital orders, use as an information repository such as a CRM or cloud storage system. 

The reality is, a hosting platform is a little more involved – A website host is a Virtual Machine (VM) which is commonly based on a Linux, or Windows machine, and is physically stored on a more powerful, enterprise-level server, such as a Dell PowerEdge or HPE Proliant server. 

The VM has a portion of these resources allocated to it, including CPU processing power, RAM, and physical storage size. The VM has a static IP allocated to itself, allowing for web traffic to point to the VM. 

On the VM is generally a program such as Apache or node.js, which allows for file access via a web browser; in turn, creating a publicly accessible website. 

Autoscaling, however, is not a single VM, but rather a series of identical VMs, which all accept incoming web traffic. Autoscaling uses the same principles as a standard hosting package, using allocated resources (CPU, RAM, Disk), but in addition to these, a disk image template, which is used as a ‘master’ image, and is used to automatically create new VMs. 

An Autoscaling instance also uses a Load Balancer which will allocate incoming website traffic to a series of identical VMs, evenly distributing web traffic. As well as the use of a VM image template & a load balancer, a series of rules can be created, to allow for VMs to automatically be created, or removed. These rules are based on total resource usage, over a certain period of time. 

The end result, is a series of VMs which are created and removed dependent on the total incoming web traffic; the end result however, is a publicly-facing website which never crashes, regardless of whether or not there are two site visitors, or two million site visitors.

The benefits

Using an Autoscaling instance has a number of benefits for Australian small to medium businesses. These include:

  • Guaranteed uptime, regardless of traffic; No matter the site traffic, the site is guaranteed to stay running without the need for manually rebooting or restarting websites. 
  • Cost-effective; Instead of paying a large monthly charge for a powerful hosting package, monthly charges are dynamic, based on the resources used. There’s no need to be paying hundreds a month for a website that has almost no traffic overnight! 
  • Absolutely no limit to how scaleable a website can be – Whether you are expecting a few thousand site visitors, or a few million – an Autoscaling instance can manage sudden and exponential increases in site traffic.

About Autoscaling Instances

Infinitely Scaleable

Unlike most regular website hosting packages which use a single, virtual machine, the Autoscaling hosting solution is a infinitely scaleable, only using what resources are required, instead of requiring manual changeover of resources such as machine types, disk sizes or database migration. 

All work is carried out in Australia

All software development, web development, cloud setup, data storage and third party programs are set up, maintained and repaired in Australia, by Australians. 

Includes Remote Cloud SQL instance

As part of the Autoscaling framework, this includes a remotely installed, Cloud SQL database hosted on Google Cloud, within their australia-southeast-1a Data Center in Macquarie Park. 

Included with the SQL instance is also accessible via SSH as as well as including Australian Data Sovereignty. 

Catch The Market

Unlike regular, static hosting, the Autoscaling platform operates on a scaled basis, only using, and only charging for resources as they are used. 

It also allows for guarantee of 99.99% site uptime, regardless of site traffic and regardless of the time of day when traffic may exponentially increase.
