Auto scaling is a method used in cloud computing and is based on the idea of load balancing. Autoscaling is of huge advantage to companies running their own web server infrastructure, leveraging cloud server hosting services, and the ones that can’t afford to reduce the total computing capacity at a given period of time. Given the demand for autoscaling, Amazon launched its own autoscaling feature in 2006 along with Elastic Load Balancing. Though Amazon auto scaling has been around for years, many are still unaware of its benefits.
Continuing the discussion, the post discusses several benefits of Amazon auto scaling.
1. Fault Tolerance
Auto scaling is highly effective at detecting any unhealthy instance, terminate it, and launch an instance to replace it. Auto scaling is also easy to configure to use multiple availability zones and can also compensate for any unhealthy availability zone within a region.
AWS autoscaling allows you to set up multiple applications across the services in minutes. It automatically adjusts capacity of applications to meet the demand of current traffic.
3. Cost Management
Amazon Auto scaling helps you optimize cost as you pay only for those EC2 instances that are in use. When using autoscaling, you can define a set of criteria that determines the launch and termination of EC2 instances.
If autoscaling becomes unbalanced between the availability zones, it would automatically make up for it by rebalancing the availability zone. It launches new instances before terminating the old ones, without compromising on the performance and availability of your applications.
