Thanks for the awesome feedback! After delivering the ability to cache and restore Auto Scaling group settings, we got a tonne of great feedback from customers. While this was really useful, there were a couple of features that we’re further required to round out this Auto Scaling Automation capability nicely.
Customers wanted the ability to exclude any Auto Scaling groups that did not have a cached existing scale setting. This is the case for example where Auto Scaling groups may have been created between a scale down action and its matching scale up action. Now customers can either default this new group’s setting, or ignore it from the scaling action.
Customers wanted the ability to scale their minimum, maximum and desired capacity independently. Now customers can do exactly that, and change these settings across multiple Auto Scaling groups at once.
Let us know what you think about our new improved Auto Scaling capabilities or any cool ideas to improve automation on your cloud infrastructure.
