I am a newbie in the OpenStack world and want to learn OpenStack. For this, I am planning to add a new feature in OpenStack i.e. auto scaling of OpenStack services. This problem has not been solved in OpenStack yet. Can anyone tell me when would I need to auto scale my OpenStack services and how's it different from the auto scaling feature that Heat provides.

Well, we now have the senlin service released with Mitaka. It is a clustering service ( Requirements like this one can be easily met using senlin now. We are on the road to support managing containers. Then ... if you have your OpenStack services delivered as container images (built using openstack-ansible or kolla, etc), you can manage the service clusters in a flexible way.
