First off all I would like to say that I’m really excited about Rancher ! I think I’ll be using rancher for allot of my future projects! Currently I’m using Amazons Elastic Beanstalk for our startup. We’ve enabled autoscaling which works pretty well for us, but I find amazon to be expensive. I would like to try if I could replicate this using rancher in combination with Digital Ocean.
My goal is to:
- Automatically add hosts when the average CPU usage goes up
- Automatically remove hosts when the average CPU usage goes down
Today I started writing a GO app which should be able to do this, but maybe there is already some tool that does this. Does anyone know if someone already did this? If so, I’d be better of working on something else
Also because I’m still pretty new to Rancher, I would like to have some opinions if this would actually work?
