We have used AWS Auto Scaling in our organization for deploying the models so that we never had to [overutilize] or [underutilized] the resources. This facility is much useful when we have multiple applications deployed and we don't know the capacity needed upfront in which case AWS Auto Scaling takes care of that[.]
  • Better fault tolerance
  • Better availability[,] Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps ensure that your application always has the right amount of capacity to handle the current traffic demand
  • Better cost management
  • Update code and configuration when the number of servers is always changing
  • How will user-uploaded content make it to new servers
There are two elements to auto-scaling. The first, adding/removing servers when [the] load varies, is the easy part. This is what AWS Auto Scaling does. The second is orchestration. This making sure your read replica doesn't receive requests until it is operational or making sure that your new [webserver] has finished starting JBoss, updating its sources, and loading your application before it is registered with the load balancer[.]

AWS Auto Scaling is widely used in my organization as it help us to give a better performance from our systems. As we are using high end applications so it always help us to manage the priority of the another apps and give the smooth functioning of system without any lag and crash.
  • Helps in cost management.
  • Application performance management.
  • Smooth operations.
  • It should be made available all over the world.
  • Auto response time should be manageable.
  • Auto scaling time should be less with improvement in coding.
AWS Auto Scaling is very much suited for the organisation where high-end applications are used mostly. It allows you to manage various instances on which it can work automatically with predefined peak values. It supports in low costing and performance improvement of the system who works on the cloud.

AWS Auto Scaling brings speed improvements to our developer experience, and cost savings across our organization. Our developers can move faster when the tooling they need for testing is always available, and AWS Auto Scaling allows that while controlling the cost. In addition, using AWS Auto Scaling can keep our site responsive, while also controlling costs related to our application.
  • Reliability
  • Cost savings
  • Load balancing
  • Start up speed
  • Scaling speed
  • Infrastructure complexity
AWS Auto Scaling is a useful tool for variable, heavy workloads. It can control costs for heavy workloads like compilations and tests, and can also be used to respond to application loads that change over time. Good usage is a webserver [whose] traffic mostly comes during the day. Keeping servers running all night is expensive, but AWS Auto Scaling can spin up servers when they're needed based on load.

AWS auto scaling is used for making smart scaling decisions. It is being used to automate and build various scaling plans from different resources across various departments. It also monitors our applications and automatically adds or removes capacity in real-time. This is very helpful to maintain performance and availability with our workload changing continuously.
  • Smart scaling decisions
  • Automatically maintain performance
  • Pay per use
  • Provide more documentations.
  • Provide in-house training for better use of product.
Start with reviewing all your in-house applications and make a plan on what all applications can be scaled up. These can be optimized based on cost and performance. With a continuously changing workload, AWS Auto Scaling helps to build and automate the scaling of various applications across various resources. It also helps to manage the performance and workload.
