What is Auto Scaling

Last Updated: Sep 30, 2017

Auto Scaling is a management service that allows users to automatically adjust elastic computing resources according to business needs and policies.

  • ECS instances can be added seamlessly to support traffic peaks.
  • When traffic returns to a normal condition, ECS instances can be removed automatically to save costs.
