Application Auto Scaling target tracking can now be used to scale your Amazon AppStream 2.0 fleets. Target tracking allows you to dynamically scale your applications to automatically maintain a target metric. Using target tracking, AppStream 2.0 customers can simply specify a target capacity utilization metric for a fleet, and target tracking automatically increases or decreases the fleet capacity to maintain the target capacity utilization. Customers can configure target tracking policies for their AppStream 2.0 fleets via the AWS CLI, the AWS SDK, or AWS CloudFormation. To learn more, see Managing Fleet Scaling Using the AWS CLI.

Customers can also continue to use Application Auto Scaling step scaling or scheduled scaling policies to automatically scale their AppStream 2.0 fleets. Scheduled scaling policies automatically increase or decrease fleet size according to a schedule, and step scaling policies automatically add or remove a set number or percentage of streaming instances based on capacity utilization. Target tracking, scheduled scaling, and step scaling can be used to manage your AppStream 2.0 fleets in all regions where AppStream 2.0 is available.
