AWS Auto Scaling with scaling plans and predictive scaling (for Amazon EC2) is now available in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) and AWS Europe (Milan) regions. AWS Auto Scaling monitors your applications and automatically adjusts capacity to maintain steady, predictable performance at the lowest possible cost. With a simple, powerful user interface, you can build scaling plans in minutes across resources including Amazon EC2 instances and Spot Fleets, Amazon ECS tasks, Amazon DynamoDB tables and indexes, 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 to dynamically scale your Amazon EC2 instances, you can combine it with AWS Auto Scaling to scale additional resources for other AWS services. AWS Auto Scaling ensures that your applications always have the right resources at the right time. AWS Auto scaling can also be used to configure predictive scaling to automatically scale Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling groups in advance of impending traffic changes.

With this expansion, AWS Auto Scaling is now available in 24 regions.
