  4. 4. Traditional Scaling Lost customers • Fixed capacity • Under utilization of resources • Lost CustomersAmazon Auto Scaling • Align no. of instances with demand • Flexible capacities and scaling sizes • Save costs
  5. 5. Amazon AutoScaling• Handle all the variety of load bursts and patterns• Scale out Amazon EC2 instances seamlessly and automatically when demand increases• Scale down unwanted Amazon EC2 instances automatically and save money when demand subsides• Decide the scaling based on AWS CloudWatch metrics
