Overall Satisfaction with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

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.
  • You no need to continuously check server and network loads.
  • It has very optimized feature that Pay As You Go (We need to pay only for what we are using).
  • You can setup auto scaling easy and quickly.
  • If you are fresher, then may be it bit confusing, you need to read documentation properly.
  • If you don't know which resource you need to auto scale (Server load or network load), then may be we can not use this feature properly.
  • Availability zone management can be improve.
  • Load balancer.
  • Pay As You Go.
  • Resource monitoring.
  • Previously when our one server down leads to down all websites within it, but now it manages automatically.
  • Fixed bandwidth per month in old server, but here all things can be manager automatically, we need to pay for how much resources we are using.
  • We can focus more on development instead of server management.
Before we were using server with fixed resources which having Microsoft IIS installed.
Server has fixed hard disk size, and fixed number of GBs per month.
Sometimes all resources are consumed prior to next billing cycle, then at the end, we need to buy or pay more for extra resources to let all things work as expected.
After AWS EC2 Auto scaling, we don't need to go and check how server performing, and how much resources consumed.

If you have a website or application with large number of users, then Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling can help you a lot.
If you are not sure when and how many users can access resources same time, then you can start with basic configuration with auto scaling.
Your AWS server will manage server load automatically when user increases, same as it will reduce newly created server when less users.
