What Is Cloud Elasticity?

August 1, 2023

Cloud elasticity is a cloud-based infrastructure's capability to automatically and dynamically adjust its resources based on current requirements. Elasticity entails both scaling up (adding resources during peak times to optimize performance) and scaling down (reducing resources during periods of low demand to optimize cost efficiency). In most cases, cloud elasticity involves the dynamic allocation of CPU and memory resources.
