Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud, allowing your applications to respond quickly to rapid fluctuations in demand. At all times, you can be responsive to your users while ensuring that your computing power is optimally used. With Amazon EC2, you don't have to maintain excess servers in anticipation of future demand, or continue to run servers at sub-optimal utilization rates when the demand decreases. Instead, you use "auto-scaling", which means you dial up or dial down the number of EC2 instances you need based on your current load. This paper focuses on how to implement auto-scaling with Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS).
