Starting with VMware Cloud Director 10.2.2, you can auto scale applications depending on the current CPU and memory use.

For information about the configuration of the auto scale solution, see Auto Scale Groups in the VMware Cloud Director Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide.

Depending on predefined criteria for the CPU and memory use, VMware Cloud Director can automatically scale up or down the number of VMs in a selected scale group. To balance the load of the servers that you configure to run the same application, you can use VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer (Avi Networks).

System administrator and organization administrator roles have full control over the VMs in the scale groups. The other global tenant roles can view the VMs and access the VM Web Console but cannot delete, edit, perform power operations, and so on.

If you delete a scale group, VMware Cloud Director does not delete any of the existing VMs in the scale group.
