Overall Satisfaction with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

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
  • AWS Autoscaling is a beneficial feature , saves a lot of credit
  • Resources can be provisioned as need be. High capacity resources can be allocated when required.
  • Auto spinning of servers for load sharing and failover
  • Autoscaling helps replicating the OS VM, however , he application software configuration is a missing part. Manual Intervention is required to set up the configuration for the new spun EC2 instances to be productive.
  • Dynamic Scaling is the key
  • No manual intervention required to provision servers
  • The Auto scaling kicks off automatically based on the threshold set
  • There are no negative impact
  • There is a provision NOT to use this feature if the organization thinks its not of much use
  • Higher rate on Investment because it saves credits which can be used for other resources.
The Oracle Compute Instance Auto scaling features works very similar to the AWS once. However, the AWS EC2 Auto scaling feature has many more config parameters to it.
