Comment: It really depends on your business model (Score 2, Insightful) 124

When your revenues scale with the services rendered, it *does* make business sense to auto-scale. Auto-scaling is a technical solution, not a business one. Being Slashdotted isn't typically associated with more commercial activity, it's associated with "hit-and-run" visitors. The same with social networks. Does Twitter even have a business model? But wherever there's a business model where margins are relatively stable but activity rises and falls, auto-scaling makes you money rather than costing you severely. Like many things, it's a tool which should be used wisely, where not paying attention can leave you missing fingers.

Nothing is faster than the speed of light ... To prove this to yourself, try opening the refrigerator door before the light comes on.
