Scaling is the process of adding more capacity to a component in your app. There are two kinds of scaling in App Platform:

  • Horizontal scaling adds more containers, which will be load-balanced.

  • Vertical scaling increases the amount of CPU and memory allocated to each container instance.

You can control how each component in an app scales. This configuration is available both in the app spec and in the control panel.
