A simple and effective predictive resource scaling heuristic for large-scale cloud applications

08/03/2020 ∙ by Valentin Flunkert, et al. ∙ 0

We propose a simple yet effective policy for the predictive auto-scaling of horizontally scalable applications running in cloud environments, where compute resources can only be added with a delay, and where the deployment throughput is limited. Our policy uses a probabilistic forecast of the workload to make scaling decisions dependent on the risk aversion of the application owner. We show in our experiments using real-world and synthetic data that this policy compares favorably to mathematically more sophisticated approaches as well as to simple benchmark policies.
