Autoscaling allows you to change the RAM, CPU and disk size settings automatically based on the rules you specify. For example, you can set up a rule that will add 1000MB of memory to a virtual server if RAM usage has been above 90% for the last 10 minutes - but add no more than 5000MB in total in 24 hours.
