Great news for Intrahost Virtual Data Centre customers. VDC virtual machines now can auto-scale resources on demand. So if Stephen Fry tweets your website, the VDC can automatically increase memory and CPU to cope :) You are able to increase memory capacity, CPU and disk storage if specified percentage thresholds are reached, for a specified amount of time.
For example, you can set your control panel to allow Virtual Machine A to increase memory by 256MB for upto 1024MB per 24 hours if your memory level exceeds 90% for 30 minutes or more.
See screenshot below.
