Overall Satisfaction with AWS Auto Scaling

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[.]

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[.]
