Independence of resources
Deployments are provisioned into isolated capsules each with guaranteed resource allocation. Auto-scaling controls the resources available to the service. Resources are scaled automatically based on the total disk storage use of a deployment. RAM usage is based on a ratio of provisioned data storage. Auto-scaling is designed to respond to the short-to-medium term usage trends of the service. Every hour, each deployment is checked and if it is running short on resources, then more units are allocated to the deployment.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Approach to resilience
If any node becomes unavailable, the system stays accessible while other nodes step in to take on the work while it is recovering. Those nodes are spread over available zones so that one zone becoming unavailable does not make a deployment unavailable. Similarly, if any access portal becomes unavailable, one or more access portals take over the load.
