Thumbs down for Siteground.
I tried out the autoscale feature in Siteground Cloud Servers and it was a headache. The server was blocked many times, and the support team told me that the peaks in the visitors were too sudden (which I think is the main idea of an automatic scaling function). In addition to these problems, the projected costs skyrocketed, as I had to manually add resources to keep things going.
I got to Cloudways to try the Kyup autoscale feature (although I knew that Kyup was a side product of Siteground).
I am very happy with the automatic adjustment function of Kyup. I had many situations in which my website requires to upscale and then downscale and it worked as a charm,
I'll go from Cloudways if Siteground is the alternative to Kyup.
I must clarify that I am a satisfied user of Siteground for other projects, but not for websites with high demand and peaks of traffic.
