Amazon EC2 Spot Console now supports scheduled scaling for Application Auto Scaling, enabling you to plan scaling activities based on predictable workload patterns. Using the Spot Console, now you can create scheduled actions for your Spot Fleet request to scale the capacity up and down at specified times.

When you create a scheduled action, you can specify when the scaling activity should occur, the minimum capacity, and the maximum capacity. At the specified time, Auto Scaling scales your Fleet based on the new capacity values. You can create scheduled actions that scale one time only, or that scale on a recurring basis.

Support for scheduled scaling in the EC2 Spot Console is now available in all public AWS regions. You can learn more about this feature by reading the documentation page and learn about Spot Instances here.
