In Kubernetes, the Node Controller is the component in charge of
registration and revocation of Nodes (minions) in a cluster. However as the
Kubernetes documentation states [1], it doesn't automatically provision a
new node, simply performing the registry task for the list of nodes.

Therefore, any autoscaling of Nodes would have to be done at a different
layer, based on metrics like CPU usage. CloudWatch for EC2 or Heat for
OpenStack are few examples of achieving this. Nodes will have to be
configured to auto register with the proxy.

If you're looking for Pod autoscaling, this is already implemented in
Kubernetes 1.1 [2]. Autoscaling is based on CPU usage.

In Stratos, the Application Topology is the view of the Composite
Application deployment. It doesn't show the IaaS specific details such as
Services and Pods. These details will have to be retrieved from the
