Microsoft Azure AutoScale Integration

Microsoft Azure Autoscale dynamically scale apps to meet changing demand. Azure Autoscale helps applications perform their best when demand changes via maximizing app responsiveness, anticipating load with different schedules, scaling by any metric, saving money by not wasting servers.
