Dynamic scaling of infrastructure

The autoscaling function of oneclick™ revolutionises resource management in computer labs. Instead of holding fixed capacities for an uncertain number of users, the infrastructure adapts dynamically to current demand. This not only optimises costs, but also avoids bottlenecks and performance degradation.
