Autoscaling is the ability of your application to automatically adjust its resources in response to a higher or lower demand or request volume. For example, an e-commerce website may experience a surge in traffic during a flash sale, requiring additional server capacity to handle the increased load. With autoscaling, the application can automatically provision more virtual machines or containers to accommodate the spike in traffic, and then scale back down once the demand decreases.

By leveraging autoscaling, you can ensure that your application remains responsive and cost-effective, even under fluctuating workloads.
