Today I’m excited to announce the launch of Drone Autoscale. Drone Autoscale is a standalone daemon that continuously polls your build queue and provisions or terminates instances based on volume. The goal is to increase your capacity when you need it, while lowering your monthly server bills.
This code was originally built for the Drone Cloud service (circa 2015) and was used to automatically scale our infrastructure on Digital Ocean. Over the past year I’ve cleaned up and modernized the code, and recently published to Github.
