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

Note: The VMware Cloud Director 10.4 version of this topic is located in the VMware Cloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal Guide. See Auto Scale Groups.

Depending on predefined criteria for the CPU and memory use, tenants can use VMware Cloud Director to automatically scale up or down the number of VMs in a selected scale group. To allow tenants to auto scale applications, you must configure, publish, and grant access to the auto scale solution.

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).
