Our servers are constantly monitored by a proactive scaling system that increases and reduces the number of available server instances in a cluster according to their traffic levels.

To handle sudden traffic levels increase we keep our clusters under 70% capacity so the scaling system has enough time (a few minutes) to provision more server instances when needed.

Almost infinite scalability is probably the best benefit you get from using Realtime instead of hosting your own messaging system yourself.
