Introducing AWS Auto Scaling

Posted on: Jan 16, 2018

AWS Auto Scaling monitors your applications and automatically adjusts capacity to maintain steady, predictable performance at the lowest possible cost. Using AWS Auto Scaling, you can setup scaling for multiple resources across multiple services in minutes. AWS Auto Scaling provides a simple, powerful user interface that lets you build scaling plans for Amazon EC2 instances and Spot Fleets, Amazon ECS tasks, Amazon DynamoDB tables, and Amazon Aurora Replicas.  

AWS Auto Scaling makes scaling simple with recommendations that allow you to optimize performance, costs, or balance between them. If you’re already using Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, you can now combine it with AWS Auto Scaling to scale additional resources for other AWS services. With AWS Auto Scaling, your applications always have the right resources at the right time.

There is no additional charge for AWS Auto Scaling. You pay only for the AWS resources needed to run your applications and Amazon CloudWatch monitoring fees. To get started you can use the AWS Management Console, Command Line Interface (CLI), or SDK.

AWS Auto Scaling is available in US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) public AWS regions, with more coming soon.
