How effective is the gear addition /removal mechanism of OpenShift? I am looking to create a mini web based application , but dont really know my consumer base yet. So will Openshift scale up/down automatically?

The scaling feature when applied scales for web traffic, it does not scale for memory consumption. Good to know based on a java application being hosted or a web application. If you need scaling for web application (traffic) then it will keep adding gears as needed up to your limit and back down as needed when traffic subsides. If you are using the free version, you get 3 gears to scale with, assuming you have not used any for another application/instance of OpenShift.
