Incubation request: App Auto-Scaling service
Koper, Dies <diesk@...>
Our App Auto-Scaling proposal has received overwhelming support from the community, and we have received and addressed various feedback.
Now, Fujitsu and IBM would like to put the proposal forward to the Services PMC as an incubation project.
Project name: App Auto-Scaling
Project proposal: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HHhj9ZK-trI_VVDR34bwOnWem83UAq5_Pjr9imRTazY/edit?usp=sharing
Proposed Project Lead: Michael Fraenkel (IBM)
Proposed Scope: Please refer to the Goals and Non-goals sections in the proposal
Development Operating Model: Distributed Committer Model
Technical Approach: Please refer to the Deliverables section in the proposal
Initial team committed: 7 engineers: 2 from Fujitsu, 2 from SAP, 3 from IBM (not including the Lead)
As functionally IBM's recently open sourced app auto-scaling solution (see https://lists.cloudfoundry.org/archives/list/cf-dev(a)lists.cloudfoundry.org/message/QRBQKDDG7PWS6EMEBWI4ARFQ3OGSSSWB) seems a good match to our proposal, the team will look at using that code.
Michael can be contacted to answer any IP concerns about this code.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Subject: [cf-dev] Proposal: App Auto-Scaling service
We have relaunched this initiative and put together a proposal for an App Auto-Scaling service, ready for your review:
The proposal includes feedback from SAP, as well as some of the suggestions you have shared with me.
The intent is to start with a MVP, really a minimal yet useful solution, that can serve as a foundation to build upon to address the various problems raised.
We welcome your feedback, as well as your participation in this exciting project!
