Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling now lets you attach multiple network interfaces when launching EC2 instances in an Auto Scaling group. Previously, customers had to write custom scripts and run lifecycle hooks to attach multiple network interfaces. You can now define multiple network interfaces in a launch template and your Auto Scaling group will automatically attach them to instances as they launch. 

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability and allows you to automatically add or remove EC2 instances according to conditions you define. You can use the fleet management features to maintain the health and availability of your fleet. You can also use the dynamic and predictive scaling features to add or remove EC2 instances. Visit the AWS Region Table to see all AWS Regions where Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is available.  

To try the new feature, log in to the EC2 console for a code-free experience, or download the AWS SDK. To learn more, visit the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling documentation page.
