Question

Does Appl Platform support auto scaling?

Does the App Platform support horizontal auto scaling like the managed Kubernetes does? If not, is this something that might be in the works, and if so what is the time line on it? Thanks

Hey @noahfish,

As of the time DigitalOcean Kubernetes gives you the ability to autoscale however this is not yet supported by the App Platform as stated in the docs here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/#when-not-to-use-app-platform

You can scale your Apps by following the steps here:

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
