Overview/Description
Auto scaling on the Elastic Compute Cloud platform enables your cloud based applications to respond to changes in load by scaling up or down, preventing under-provisioning in busy times and over-provisioning in quiet times. This course covers configuring scalable EC2 clouds using Auto Scaling groups, including a primer in the AWS command line interface, scripts to run at boot time, and in-depth configuration of auto-scaling and placement groups. This course is one of a series that cover the objectives for Amazon certification exam AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate.

Target Audience
Individuals who perform a Solutions Architect role using the Amazon AWS cloud
