Thank you to IBM for the contribution, and to Fujitsu and SAP for the commitment to assist in its maintenance and enhancement.

Hi Shannon,

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:

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 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

Dear community,

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!
