Since the last Cloud Foundry Summit, we are pleased to announce that App Autoscaler graduated from a Cloud Foundry incubation project and has moved to a new repository as one of the formal Cloud Foundry foundation projects. If you are attending the April 2-4 Cloud Foundry Summit North America 2019 , come to some of our sessions to learn more about App Autoscaler, new developments such as a user interface integration with Stratos, and discussions about future features like “scale down to zero”.
What is App Autoscaler?
The App Autoscaler is a Cloud Foundry extension project that automatically scales Cloud Foundry applications based on load. App Autoscaler addresses common concerns about keeping your application healthy no matter how the workload changes, and paying for just the instances that you need.
This open source project was started as a Cloud Foundry incubation project based on IBM’s code donation two years ago. Core committers are from IBM, SAP, and Fujitsu, globally located in Australia, India, United States, and China. It recently graduated from the Cloud Foundry incubator and moved to cloudfoundry/app-autoscaler as a formal Cloud Foundry foundation project.
What can I learn from the talks at the Cloud Foundry Summit?
We have two sessions about the App Autoscaler project at the Cloud Foundry Summit North America.
This is a joint session with Statos project team. We will present Stratos UI extension framework, and how AutoScaler is leveraging this extension framework to seamlessly enable users to manage autoscaling policies, view and query application metrics, and scaling events in the Stratos application dashboard with a consistent user experience.
You can meet our key project members in project office hours to ask questions about this project and share any thoughts and feedback you have. We will also talk about the proposal to enable scaling down to zero, the use cases, and the intial design. We are happy to get your comments and sugguestions about this new feature, which we plan to start working on after the summit.
Where can I get the schedule?

We are looking forward to seeing you in Philadelphia this April!
