Azure VMware Solution Auto-Scale
Published Dec 11 2022 02:04 PM 66.8K Views

This Auto-Scale function allows a customer to scale their Azure VMware Solution automatically to cost effectively meet their performance goals. The Azure VMware Solution has Azure Metrics for the percentage usage of cluster CPU, memory, and storage resources. These metrics are incorporated into Azure Alerts with thresholds for high-water mark and low-water mark values to trigger a call to an Azure Automation PowerShell Runbook via a Webhook which triggers the auto-scale node event within the Azure VMware Solution private cloud.
