Auto Scaling Groups

Configure Auto Scaling Group to ensure the application load is scaled based on the number of EC2 instances configured. Auto Scaling detects unhealthy instances and launches new EC2 instances. ASG is also cost-effective as EC2 Instances are dynamically created as per the application requirement within minimum and maximum count limit.

Creating Auto Scaling Group (ASG)

Navigate DevOps > Hosts > ASG to create an auto-scaling group.
  • Name - Name for the Auto Scaling Group
