The cloud resource provisioning is a mechanism of cloud resources allocation to cloud customers, and cloud customers have to interact with cloud resources using any cloud data center. The workload of the cloud environment consists of the significance of computing resources running situation in the cloud data centers. Cloud resource provisioning has a signification relation with cloud workload. The workload of cloud data centers is not the same all the time. For smooth and effective working of cloud resources at the cloud customer end, scaling of cloud resources required at cloud data center end. The scaling is a primary plan that to manage the extended work-load of the cloud data center. Scaling is implemented by adding additional or increasing computing power and memory capacity. Auto-scaling is one of an essential attribute of cloud computing that facilitates automatic provisioning of computing resources like add, remove, scale-up or scale-down resources depending upon workload. Big data applications associated with the large storage capacity and high processing power, cloud environment is suitable for fulfilling big data application requirement using auto-scaling of resources. In the present study, we have estimated the survival probability of auto-scaled cloud environment in the context of big data applications. Further, we investigated in this paper the importance of cloud resources that are used to build auto-scaling based cloud computing environment.
