Another update from a recent interview: DigitalOcean Managed Kubernetes: An Interview with the Experts “Autoscaling is also in the works; both for the cloud service itself and the managed Kubernetes offering. Autoscaling will automatically add or remove droplets from clusters as application resource requirements change.”

If this statement from the article is true, then it will be cluster autoscaling that is in the works!

“DigitalOcean Kubernetes does not yet support auto-scaling.”

I do hope from the phrasing that DigitalOcean will support auto-scaling in the future, but for now it does not.

A digital Ocean Provider was added to the kubernetes autoscaler , not sure how to enable it though https://github.com/kubernetes/autoscaler/tree/master/cluster-autoscaler/cloudprovider/digitalocean
