Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) automatic service scaling is now available in five additional regions: US West (N. California), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Sydney).
Amazon ECS automatic service scaling allows you to automatically scale an Amazon ECS service based on any Amazon CloudWatch metric. For example, you can use CloudWatch metrics published by Amazon ECS, such as each service’s average CPU and memory usage. You can also use CloudWatch metrics published by other services or use custom metrics that are specific to your application. For example, a web service could increase the number of tasks based on Elastic Load Balancing metrics like SurgeQueueLength, while a batch job could increase the number of tasks based on Amazon SQS metrics like ApproximateNumberOfMessagesVisible.
Amazon ECS automatic service scaling is already available in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland).
