We are using AWS EC2 for most of our server requirements. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling service improves the use of AWS EC2. It automatically replaces the instances with bad health conditions, it allows to sleep a server when there are low loads, etc. The main function of AWS EC2 Auto Scaling is that it saves us from any unpredictable server breakdowns by scaling the servers according to the requirements.

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is a foundational component of the web - customer facing - tier of our multi-tier LAMP stack application. This allows us to scale in response to key metrics - such as CPU utilization on the web nodes - and maintain manageable traffic loads on each of the nodes in the autoscaling group. This translates to minimizing the frequency of overloaded EC2 instances requiring intervention (in some cases automated, in other cases manual) in order to be able to serve traffic again. This in turn means that the load balancer is able to serve traffic and that we are minimizing the number of 5XX errors that are surfaced to end users. This is in use in all of our AWS hosted applications. High availability is the business problem that this solves for us, as explained above.

Sometimes, you start by configuring a server with the smallest configuration, but I think it is good to be able to find the one that suits your needs in the AWS market and simplify the server configuration procedure. There are so many virtual appliances that you can't choose. Because the infrastructure is handled by AWS, services may be put on the network without the need for networking skills. The greatest advantage is that users may concentrate just on programs.

We hosted an e-commerce website for a client on ec2 instance and plan to provide high availability prevent downtime as it is a must requirement for every site. So we use Ec2 autoscaling which is very helpful for us to divide the load between servers, scale our site, and makes the resources to sleep when there is no need of it and makes it able to run and consume when facing high load which helps in better performance as well as for billing. EC2 Autoscaling monitors the site metrics like its load hits and usage etc. and helps us to improve site performance. It is also pocket friendly, as it helps to save resources and cost very efficiently

Using AWS Autoscaling, Amazon has created an excellent tool for scaling the instances it makes. To host various types of Web Applications, we use the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling instance. CMSs, APIs, and MySQL databases are just a few examples. We begin with micro models and then scale up as users grow. Sending more resources to sleep increases their availability while decreasing their cost. The best thing about AWS Autoscaling is that it’s free. So we don’t have to pay for unused resources. Besides, they can adapt to our needs. It is cheap and can detect flaws in our sample to show unhealthiness. The existing instance is ended during an Autoscaling process, and a new one is created.

It is used to create instances and dynamic scaling to provide response to warnings. We can set up different environment without using physical system. It is used under the different department across the company and it is used to resolve the problems like autoscaling by providing minimum number of instructions. It automatically find issues and try to resolve or notify to admin.

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the whole is being used totally by the organization across various domains and verticals. And, the best thing is it can auto scale the EC2 instances as per our instances and through the settings we have pre defined. Also, it has health checks which comes in handy.

[Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling] is being used by one department (IT) but includes the whole company, since we've using this for a mail server, which is working perfectly fine. AWS always offers the best options for Virtual environments and storage, It completely solved our emails issues and more

We have been using Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling for more than 2 years.
It helps our organization to focus on work only, instead of managing server load and performance.
Now we don't need to worry about Server Processor, RAM, Storage and network bandwidth, etc.
It helps a lot to resolve issue to continuously checking server loads like other providers that don't have auto scaling functions.

We implement EC2 Auto Scaling in a variety of ways. It is used to prevent downtime or service degradation during or in preparation for heavy traffic volume, it is used as a disaster recovery sometimes in an auto-scaling group of 1 where an instance will recreate itself should it be determined to be unhealthy for any reason, and it is also used to segregate clusters of compute instances that handle different types of workloads.

My organization works on Cloud Technology. AWS being one of the market leaders in the Cloud Technology , it is widely used. Applications have periodic times of high and low usage. Auto scaling features comes in handy at these times which help provision the right amount of resources at the right time

We are using [Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling] instance to host different types of Web Applications. These range from CMS, APIs and MySQL databases. We start with a micro instances and then increase the configurations as the application user base increases.
We have also used the load balancer for our product based application. Features like Security Group and Virtual Private Network are just great,

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is being used by [our] development team. Due to its high technical nature dev-ops team manage the configuration. We use it for 2 main purposes: a) increase/decrease the resources based on demand b) deployment with zero down time by deploying a new server with new setup and code and removing [the[ old server after[wards].

Since it's a[n] extremely technical tool, it's being used by the engineering department. Our area uses it mainly for websites, in combination with Amazon Elastic Load Balancers (ELB), that make the perfect match.

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling help[s] us on moments when our websites received pikes of high traffic, to keep the [server] running, and without our intervention.
