In this course you’ll learn how to launch and configure Auto Scaling for your AWS Resources. You’ll learn to create scaling policies, configure limits, and administer auto scaling to applications, ECS, and Databases. After this course you’ll have finished the Scalability on AWS path which means you’re ready to unleash your auto scaling and load balancing skills on all your projects on AWS.
Course Overview Hey everyone. This is Mike Pfeiffer, and welcome to Auto Scaling AWS Resources. In this course, we'll take a look at everything you need to know to implement elasticity for your applications with the AWS Auto Scaling service. This service provides a single user interface used to automatically scale your applications using multiple AWS services. To get started, we'll explore how the AWS Auto Scaling service is different than the auto scaling features that you have with virtual machines running in EC2. You'll learn how to get started quickly, gain an understanding of how AWS Auto Scaling works, and we'll explore patterns and best practices for implementing elasticity in your applications running on the AWS cloud platform. From there, we'll dive deeper into Application Auto Scaling. You'll learn how to deploy target tracking scaling policies, step scaling policies, and you'll see how to implement scheduled scaling. Finally, we'll tie all of this together so you understand how to implement the scaling policies with services like the Amazon Elastic Container Service, DynamoDB, and Amazon Aurora. So whether you're looking to implement production applications, or you're just looking to learn more for AWS certifications, this course is definitely for you.
