Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is used if your computers are heavily using resources or heavily loaded, this is going to impact your backend environment. Therefore if your computers need more CPUs or additional RAM associated, then you can use Auto Scaling to take care of it. We then do not face any such structural issues with the VMs where we host the control environment and application.
Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps maintain application availability and allows you to add or remove EC2 instances. More than one instance can run at one time. You can start and stop instances at any time. It can run with any application. Linux, as an example, can be installed with it. Once the EC2 has been created, you can easily log into it.
We are using this product within our cloud-based development environment.
I use it for running Tomcat applications to restore the RDS, the database for getting the data. It then generates a UI. I am using it only for practicing purposes. I am trying to test the auto-scale feature and see how it works when we increase any workload.
