With On-Demand fleets, the users can experience a small delay accessing the first application.

On-Demand Fleets offer an additional way to reduce the streaming cost at the same time retaining the capability to utilize the features such as monitoring, easy update to the applications and auto-scaling the fleet sized based on the user demand.
