AutismCrisis.orgis a grassroots project focused on political and legislative issues related to autism spectrum disorder. Because autism healthcare coverage plays a role in the current healthcare reform debate, the site can receive spikes in traffic with little notice. AWS allows for quick and easy scale-up to adjust for sudden changes in traffic patterns.
AWS allows for considerable cost savings when scaling up to meet peaks in traffic. This cost savings is extremely important to a nonprofit, grassroots initiative such as AutismCrisis.org.
