Use cases

The Auto-Scaling SIG intends to gather user cases for many different auto-scaling scenarios in OpenStack. Not all use cases will be immediately available, and some may never be implemented. But collecting all the possible use cases will help in communication and build a view of what is possible.

Control plane scaling

While the possibility of scaling the Control Plane was discussed at the Denver PTG, there are currently no defined use cases or requirements. Contributions are welcome.

Other scaling

Similar to Control Plane Scaling, there may be other categories of scaling which could be handled by an Orchestration Engine but have yet to be defined.


An initial list of use cases was captured at the Denver 2019 PTG

How to submit a new use case

When submitting a new use case, please use use-cases/template.rst as a starting point.
